Hi, all

Based on action required and discussion of the geolocation WG f2f meeting during TPAC 2014, in 
Santa Clara on Oct. 27-28 (http://www.w3.org/2014/10/27-28-geolocation-minutes.html#action08), 
I send our proposal on possible vehicular extension to Geolocation API.

Attached please find our proposal.
(Refer to Part of "Vehicular extension to Geolocation API"

Unfortunately, I couldn't join in Santa Clara, but Kaz of W3C helped me and presented our 
proposal for me and questions from Automotive business group.

The Geolocation WG understood the need for the extension which allow a smartphone in the car 
to get geolocation information from the car.
Also they agreed that Geolocation API implementations can leverage outside devices of location 
when "enableHighAccuracy" is set.  
It seemed they were basically OK with adding some guidance on how to interpret 
"enableHighAccuracy", i.e. to allow outside devices.

However, they were talking about some issues such as device authentication, vehicle interface 
standardization, and check of data availability when the positioning data is provided by an 
external device.

First, are you agreeable to our proposal to allow an application to obtain location information 
from external devices outside the local host device, especially in the case that more accurate 
location information is available on the external device than the local host device?

Any comments would be appreciated.
