Really not sure about merely having space-separate lat/long/alt co-ordinates.
This means we arnt specifying a name field for them - how well does
this work with none xml formatting like JSON? (co-ordinates will need
to be passed into separate, likely double, variables for use after
all).

We could have space separated as a xml specific optimisation, but I
really think we need specific names defined for lat/long/alt - this
would also remove ambiguity/confusion people sometimes have as to
lat/long or long/lat.

Also, does the point itself need an ID ? (the POI itself is required
to have a unique one, but does each point it might use within it
also?)
