Well, I think a majority of this WG has decided that its 
consideration of Geopriv has concluded.  The W3C more broadly has not 
concluded its discussion of Geopriv as it relates to this WG, and so 
I do not know how that should be reflected -- or not -- in the issue 
tracker.  But at a minimum, there is certainly not a unamimous view 
within the WG that Geopriv should be off the table.
