If a workable POI standard is so easy, we ought to have one by now!

Good idea. If you can also kick start a community of implementors who
will try to build, test and refine richer, more sophisticated
potential standards for Geo/AR, it should be possible imho for the W3C
group's mission to evolve over the next year or so to track that
changing reality. But in the absence of candidate designs that have
multiple implementations, I'm completely supportive of a modest,
"let's stabilise the basics" charter.

Generally it's better to finalise things in W3C WGs than to invent
them, and we still seem to be in a very inventive phase here...

cheers,

Dan
