[Xesam] Practical applicability issues

I'd like to raise again a long-standing issue of structure support.
Some of missing features that require structure support are actually being
_requested by potential users_(who are encouraged to chime in ;-) :
* Geo tagging and geo information for addresses;
* Status and presence information for contacts;
* Adequate support of iCalendar spec, which is currently more or less
Needless to say support means not only storage and retrieval, but
This can't be resolved merely by introduction of some string format for a
field that represents structured data, since eg useful features like geo
proximity search won't work..
I consider this to be a blocker issue that significantly limits applicability
of xesam and interoperability with platforms that don't have structure
