Why would pizza delivery use this? Wouldn't pizza delivery sites keep 
asking for an address using an old-fashioned form? I certainly am never 
going to trust any software to work out my address for me. I have enough 
trouble getting the pizza deliverers to figure out how my address maps to 
a physical location, I can't even imagine what a mess software would make 
of this problem.

As far as I can tell, of the use cases for geolocation given in the spec, 
only the third ("Automatic form-filling") involves an address, and frankly 
I'm not convinced that that is a realistic use case.
