Hi Erik,

I  think at this stage we have sufficient consensus about this, so I
would therefore propose that, for version 1 of the Geolocation API
specification, we define location in terms of spatial coordinates.
Also note that geo URIs [1] can be trivially built from a Position
object. Defining position in other ways, including defining other type
of URI schemes (e.g. as proposed in [2]) should be out of scope for
this specification.

Many thanks,
