OK I see what you did now. Yes I agree that would be nice to fit into my example service to show use of time fields. The problem is geonames doesn't make that information available through any of the web services it publishes, so integrating it would require a hack that I just don't have time to do. Maybe I'll email the geonames folks and request a new service though.
