The edit user profile feature on http://alpha.libre.fm/ does this. If
the user supplies their location, they can do an AJAX lookup for it on
geonames.org and the site will save that location into their profile as
a URI.

Under the hood, geonames' JSON API is used, because parsing RDF/XML in
Javascript in a web browser doesn't sound like my idea of a good time.
