I thought XEP 80 was complicated enough. :P
I was planning to restrict the API to using WGS 84 for geographical
coordinates. This implies that clients and connection managers may need to do
conversion in some cases.
I think having a latitute/longitude in WGS 84 covers the majority of use
cases. Further use cases are probably covered by having
room/street/city/province/country etc. key/value pairs.
For more complicated cases, using extended presence or tubes may be more
