Have you considered reading the data sheet to see what
the tolerance is? That's well within specs, FWIW.

It certainly might. But not for most digital circuits.

There's something like that, but I suggest an LM317 and
two resistors. You can easily tweak that one if you like.
Or if it's just a reference, a cheap part is the TL431,
an adjustable (>=2.5V) shunt regulator. See the data
sheet for the connection and resistor values. It needs
1mA or so to regulate, and make sure any bypass
capacitor is in the "guaranteed stable" range.

Ok for some purposes, but could be noisy (from the
digital circuits) as well the tolerance issues.

No, there are references available from various mfrs,
as good as 0.1% tolerance or better, and with better
temperature drift specifications. Obviously the cost
goes up with the performance. I'm designing in one that
is guaranteed not to drift more than 0.0003%/degree C.
Sounds great, but that's 3 LS bits of the DAC per degree
of temperature change!
