Hi,

The proposed new charter for the group currently has a deliverable for
indoor location:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-geolocation/2013Nov/att-0003/Proposed_Geolocation_Working_Group_Charter.htm#deliverables

During discussions last week in TPAC, there was unclarity on:
* whether indoor location needed anything special in the API (i.e. only
required browsers to use whatever location technology is available
indoors)

* if it did, whether there was sufficient experience with these
specificities to proceed with standardization; for instance, there
doesn't seem be to an official iOS or Android indoor location API

I would be interested in getting views on these two considerations.

If any of the two is confirmed, I think including indoor location in the
new charter as a Rec-track deliverable is probably premature; in which
case, I would suggest we keep the topic on, but as "use case and
requirements" deliverable, rather than for an API.

Thanks,

Dom
