i am sorry for misinterpreting you. you were writing on that there 
should be something like "http://geourl.org" for locations, which looked 
like the http prefix approach to me.

you also wrote that "It would be nice to have a 'common' way
to express geo locations in Web documents", and i fully agree to this. 
my eventual goal is to have a geolocation syntax and semantics approach 
for the web, and then make that available through a uri scheme, in http, 
and in some content-oriented format. currently there is the expired 
draft for uris

http://geouri.org/draft-mayrhofer-geo-uri-00.txt

and something different for embedding geolocation information in html

http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-daviel-html-geo-tag-08.txt

and again something else for http

http://www3.tools.ietf.org/html/draft-daviel-http-geo-header-05

but there is no common model.

cheers,

dret.
