Hey Dan,

it's pretty much dead in the water.

Alex had to step down as he changed roles and the W3C doesn't have any 
commitment to this at all.

Raj and the OGC have tried to keep pushing on with POI related standards 
to ensure this work wasn't wasted...but I haven't had time to 
participate in that and it doesn't seem very active either 8(

And from an Augmented Reality point of view I think this work just 
didn't get far enough along to be relevant/useful...and there's a whole 
lot of easier and better opportunities out there to take advantage of in 
terms of data and web related standards.

I'd love to hear the thoughts from others on the list.
