Hello list,

I feel I can support these ideas. I do think that, when choosing this
name, we need to spend some extra care in using and describing the WG's
goals to avoid unnecessary confusion. If we go with this name I think it
would be wise to write out the name of the WG wherever possible.
However, I like how the term "Pattern of Interest" has ties to both
geolocated AR through the abbreviation POI and to image
recognition-driven AR through the term Pattern. I think it is a decent
approximation of what the group would concern itself with.

Summary: +1

Also, I think Dan raised some interesting points on how broad the term
"POI" can be interpreted once you expand your view beyond "lat/lon/alt".
I think keeping this broad view is critical to building (and keep
building) better AR but at the same time we don't want to turn this
group into a philosophical society but instead deliver something usable
in a workable amount of time. This duality needs to be addressed in the
