I would add a comma if the point name ends with a number, because Talks
reads the number + thousend with the Metric distance.

This is a limitation of the poi converter, loadstone itself doesn't care
what characters are in a point name. The only thing I wouldn't put in a
point name is a quote " but even that should be handled correctly. It's
probably best to keep punctuation to a minimum in point names anyway. This
makes searching a bit easier and probably cuts down on extra characters
being spoken depending on punctuation mode.
