I would recommend that you create a LISP routine that prompts for the point, stores the coordinates, and then inserts the block with one attribute at that point. You could make a string out of the coordinates, put a comma between them, and then input the string into the attribute value at the time of insertion.
There are a couple of routines on my site that you could use as a starting point for parts of this function. BSEQ.LSP does the attribute entry part, and HOWHI.LSP does the point coordinate-to-string part.
