Hi George,

I was going to include it but it doesn't currently have any web browsers 
that parse or support it.  So at the moment it can't currently be 
classified as an Augmented Web related standard.

The dynamic binding is closer and if somebody implemented a library that 
makes this work within one of the mainstream web browsers then that 
could change.  But for now I would classify it as an "AR Standard" and 
not an "Augmented Web Standard".

BTW: Have any of the AR Browser Vendors committed to implementing it? 
 From memory both Martin and Hafez said that they weren't yet working on

Yep I saw the email about that on the POI WG mailing list.  If any 
"Place/Location" based standards based on 
microformats/microdata/RDF/JSON please let me know and I'll add that to 
the Related Standards list.
