Directions maps to dem.address.aux_street which has:

        additional street-level information which formatters
        would usually put on lines directly below the street
        line of an address, such as postal box directions in CA

There is also dem.address.subunit with:

        directions *below* the unit (eg.number) level, such as
        appartment number, room number, level, entrance or even
        verbal directions

and dem.address.addendum:

        any additional information that did not fit anywhere else

Thus "Street info" may be more appropriate than "Directions"
or the generic "Other info" et al ?
