David,

The ICBM standard is for geotagging the actual content whereas we are talking about a standard that lets the content know the location of the User or device so that the website can be location-aware.

I want to use as much of the existing standards, but have more questions about where it should exist in ecosystem and how servers and webpages would expect to see it and use it.

Surely you've heard of ICBM

Could elaborate on what you like and dislike on this?
