mfoltzgoogle has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/magnetometer:

== Shouldn't need Web Service to compute declination ==
Is it feasible for the Web platform provide an API to compute this 
instead of relying on a Web service?  Or extend the reading to provide
 both raw and corrected values? It seems like something that most, if 
not all applications using the Magnetometer API would want.

Notes:
- Offline is a relevant use case for this API.
- The Web service in the example exposes the user's latitude and 
longitude over HTTP.
