I don't understand why we need some way to mark up such addresses.   
Aren't publishers already marking them up with class="adr"?  A while  
back I wrote a tool to insert geo coordinates in hCards based on  


That doesn't require any structure to addresses, so it works fine  
with adr as unstructured text.  I think we'd have a hard time coming  
up with a better solution to this problem than the one that's already  
working in practice.
