A W3C Geolocation implementation that would receive the RFC5139
address would simply convert it to the format in our spec. We could
perhaps provide an Appendix with an example that shows how to do the
conversion? I don't know right now what the mapping would be, but it's
something we can certainly work on. What do you think?
