Hi Andrea - it just occurred to me that we're missing a topic in BP8
concerning making geometries "friendly" for the Web.

It's not just about the format(s) we use, it's also about providing
geometry objects that are of a size that user agents can handle. (this [1]
example provides a nice illustration)

I recall that the Geonovum testbed topic 3 covered this issue; see here [2]

What do you (& others) think?

Jeremy
