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.
