Hello,

I have updated the Geolocation API draft:
http://dev.w3.org/geo/api/spec-source.html

- As per Chris Butler's suggestion, I added velocity and heading to
the Position interface.

- I made minor edits to the definition of the attributes of the
PositionOptions as per Aaron's suggestions.

- Added a Scope section. After taking into account all the input about
what the Geolocation API should do and how it should define the
concept of a geographic location, I came to the conclusion that it's
best to keep things simple for the first version of this API and only
use geographic coordinates (lat, long, altitude) plus velocity and
heading.

I'd be grateful if you could have another look at the API.

Many thanks,
Andrei
