Assuming there are about a trillion pages (which is an estimate of the number
of distinct pages on the Web in early 2009), that would mean that this feature
would be useful for 0.003% of pages. That's a very very small fraction.

It may be that the better solution here is to use microdata, rather than have
an angular coordinate element.
