I tend t o think that the reason for this might lie in the fact that it
is a few degrees more difficult to add these directions than just the
basic four.  The main reason is that you have to account for two
possible different ways of typing the direction out (northeast or ne for
example).   All is not lost, however, there is a very good (well, I'm a
bit prejudiced) snippet for adding the additional directions available
