just as a clarification: this comment probably refers to the geo: 
scheme, which is something i had nothing to do with. it was proposed 
last year

http://www1.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/uri-review/current/msg00607.html

and the "everything should be http" school of thought took notice very 
quickly

http://www1.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/uri-review/current/msg00608.html

and as a fifth way of juggling prefixes 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/uri/2008Jan/0023.html already lists 
geoloc:, http:, urn:, and info:, which all were proposed as candidates 
for identifying geolocation resources), somebody suggested to use data: 
uris because coordinates are data, i guess...

cheers,

dret.
