That sounds more like an "object" than a tag. Already for some time
I'm working in a separate branch which will feature "inline objects".
This would be the feature you need to create an object to represent
locations. Could indeed be rendered as a small icon.

Alternative you could think of this as a link. I think google maps
accepts lattitude and longitude numbers for search. So you could
configure an interwiki URL for google maps and insert places like
"map?lon,lat" and have it turn into a link that goes to google maps.
