Hello Bernard,

I've been thinking something similar, and test implemented such URI, e.g.:
http://www.kanzaki.com/ns/geo/u0tyz0ssw:2008-10-26_2008-10-31;International_Semantic_Web_Conference

Because URIs in geohash.org identify services, not things like events
or places, I use 302 redirection to represent RDF/XML data. Some
notes:

- data/time delimiter changed from enclosing [] to tailing ;, since []
are reserved chars in URI and would cause some identification troubles
- currently use RDFical vocabulary for events. Care should be taken
for 'dtend', as it must be "non-inclusive end of the event" (i.e. one
day after the last day of an event)

Not quite sure how useful in practice, but interesting trial (still
needs some fixes).

cheers,
