the geo spec says

"If the publisher knows and is publishing the name of the location in  
addition to its geo lat/long, then the publisher MUST use hCard  
instead of just geo to publish the name and geo lat/long of the  

So I'm trying to determine when a named location must use hcard (such  
as when those locations have a name but no address, but more  
generally, when the geop and or adr aren't actually "contact  
information" - for example, the location of the eiffel tower in a  
guidebook (for which of course, the adr certainly works) )
