(Apologies if this shows up twice, it seemed to disappear as soon as I submitted it.)

If it's decided that we need/want a place to mark a distance, would it be at all possible to treat ZI/VA more like BAI, and add place tags to it? That is, {vu} would preserve its current meaning of "A long way from" while {sevu} would mark the (long) distance. We could even use {tevu} for the old "yonder at" meaning. That way we preserve the existing usage of VA and ZI, while adding the ability to give the actual distance using new forms. It would require a change to the grammar, but it seems reasonable to me.
