Hi,

There is an interest in producing specifications for POI (Points of 
Interest) data and work is underway on a charter for a new POI working 
group:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-ac-members/2010AprJun/0067.html

We are currently working on the charter for the next set of deliverables 
from the Geolocation working group.
At this time our scope includes some specific additions to the 
Geolocation API ("Level 2"), as well as a separate DeviceOrientation 
Event specification and most likely also a Location Provider REST API 
specification, but there is an interest in extending the scope.

The discussions around Augmented Reality on the Web and standardization 
of POI data are clearly relevant to the scope of work in the Geolocation 
working group, and I am wondering if it would make sense to consider 
including the planned POI work in the Geolocation charter. The feedback 
I have received so far suggests that this is an interesting idea to 
some, but there might be good arguments against.

What do you think?

Lars Erik
