Hi John,

Thank you very much for your comments. As part of the Last Call review
process, the working group will formally address all the issues you
have raised. Meanwhile, I would like to clarify some of the statements
you made in the paragraph below:

As the editor of the Geolocation API specification, I would like to
state that I have never perceived any comments made by Apple to be
threatening in any way. On the contrary, the current text of the Last
Call Working Draft reflects the consensus reached after discussions on
our mailing list. I am confident that the spec, as it stands today,
has not been unduly influenced by any one party.
