Interesting. In this way, you describe the object of ical:geo as an
anonymous resource, which implies ical:geo is an owl:ObjectProperty and has
no specific range. Then, it becomes possible to write as:

 <ical:geo rdf:parseType="Resource">
  <geo:lat>35.678</geo:lat>
  <geo:long>139.770</geo:long>
 </ical:geo>

If anybody wants to describe coordinates in a manner strictly following to
the RFC 2445, then he/she can use your syntax (first - rest - nil).

If, on the other hand, want to describe a place with WGS84, we can use
geo:lat/geo:long here (this might not be safely converted back to
iCalendar, because there is no way to specify datum).

It looks happy solution for both sides. Isn't it ?
