Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: For now, you can use
   <meta name="geo itemvalue="lat;lon">HUMAN-FRIENDLY- and LOCALIZED-LAT,LON
...but on the long run we might add some ways to do this. (There have been
other requests along similar lines for various types, e.g. ratings). I'd like
to wait until we have more experience with microdata before adding this,
though, so that we can do it right. Baby steps.
