Well, I see your point, but I think it's handy to have lat/long
in its own namespace, independent of issues about 5 first names
and such ;-)

So I'd rather detach the 2003/01/geo namespace from wgs84.
Umm... darn; too bad the wgs84 is baked in.

DanBri, what's your take?

Anybody know if the Geo XG has collected any relevant info?

I'd look, but I got locked out of w3.org
while doing GRDDL testing. Oops.
