Subject: go up to
This has probably reached "mootdom," but "up" in the sense of "go up to the
door" to me would mean "right up to."
"Walk up the street," however would be going north, up a slope, or walking
towards a position that the speaker is psychologically identifying with.
This last one is similar to "I'm coming!" in response to a dinner call,
where the speaker puts themself (sorry, I like it) psychologically in the
physical location of the rest of the family.
Again, this is my feel. I have never little written on these subjects.
