On product: 

This issue should be tracked in tracker.  We've had proposals from the IETF GeoPriv working group to include a number of items in the Coordinates object:

* a time after which the location information expires
* a boolean as to whether the location information can be transmitted to 3rd parties
* a URL pointing to further policy details
* a human readable 'noteWell' string

Each of these items has been considered in various forms and discussed at the f2f and via email.
