Here's draft definition of 'thing'

A ' thing is a physical object with no fixed location that may have a 
POI digital information attached that cannot be automatically detected 
by geopositioning sensors. The POI,therefore will only be detectable by 
a default visual ( or acoustic?) search, invoked by a client.

Question: Does this require a default registry of visual or acoustic 
search services that can decode the visual ( or acoustic?) pattern to 
point the client to the appropriate URI that explains the POI format?
