I like the approach using a ValueFilter which keeps the code separate and
used only when needed.

However, I believe that building the functionallity out of prev and subst
is too low level and it would be be better to have a single filter that
does everything that is necessary to add the symbol; for example

I say this because not all of the special values go at the beginning of the
string.  Some of them are used to separate the parts of a streetname (eg
between 'Main' and 'Street' in "Main Street").  Also the required regular
expression to fix up the ref could get complex as shown in another message
in the thread.

The substitution filter might be a good thing to have for other purposes
