Thanks for the prompt response.

This feature would be useful for content extraction and customization with any
of the sites that display angular coordinates (latitude, longitude, right
ascension, declination, ...). Also, it could help search engines to deal more
accurately with such coordinates. For example, tell which sites actually
contain a large amount of such coordinates, from those that e.g. just display
their own coordinates.

I own a site that displays thousands of angular coordinates, and I could keep
living with the current status for my Javascript and content generation, but
this element would make user customization much easier, plus the search engine

As for the sites that deal with such angular coordinates, a quick research show
that about 25 million pages do that.

But if it is too late to add features (even when they do not really interact
with anything else, except styling), let's stop that here.
