Thanks for the support. I am conscious of the potential delay, and I'm
trying to mitigate it as much as possible.
Since the webspace at dev.w3.org/2006/webapi is just a set of addresses
for convenience, and since we are discussing something that is clearly
some kind of WebAPI, unless there is some process reason I don't know of
or you do something blatantly stupid like trying to make a document look
like it has more W3C support than it does through inappropriate use of
stylesheets, missing or misleading status statements and so on, I don't
see that it is impossible to put a proposal for a spec into that space.
Indeed, there is no reason I can see that a geolocation group could not

the members of the two groups not to step on each other's work.
Matt Womer set up a (temporary?) playground to submit geolocation API

All of Chaals' caveats above apply to the new repo, too, of course... as
do any IPR issues you can think of. And any documents can be sent to
the public-geolocation email list as attachments, too, if that is more
Well, the reply gets out according to the vagaries of net access and my
