ISSUE-3 (civic-addressing): Exposing civic addresses in the API

http://www.w3.org/2008/geolocation/track/issues/3

Raised by: Matt Womer
On product: 

We've discussed including different notions of location in the API, most notably "civic addresses".

Civic addresses currently are being included in 'v2' or 'level 2'  of the recommendation.

Proposals for civic addresses have included:

* multiple forms of location simultaneously (@@url?)

* civic addresses optionally: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-geolocation/2008Jun/0058.html

* Microsoft/Alec Bernston's proposal: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-geolocation/2009Feb/0000.html

The latter informed the first editor's draft of v2 as mentioned here: 
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-geolocation/2009Mar/0072.html


The main issue thus far has been in what format the address is represented.
