I think this goes a bit back to the early <trigger> <content> idea as that
has a nice clear separation.

In this case the trigger is the location  (by some GPS standard - not
a description), and the content is a POI. (which could be a description/name
of that location, or a 3d mesh, or any other bit of data).

The trigger can be, of course, updated completely independently of the data.
(as in the moving across the street example)
