Thanks for the support.  I am conscious of the potential delay, and I'm 
trying to mitigate it as much as possible.

Matt Womer set up a (temporary?) playground to submit geolocation API 
documents for discussion:
     http://dev.w3.org/geo/
and
     http://dev.w3.org/geo/api

All of Chaals' caveats above apply to the new repo, too, of course... as 
do any IPR issues you can think of.  And any documents can be sent to 
the public-geolocation email list as attachments, too, if that is more 
convenient.

Happy birthday!
