No, nothing got worked out of that one.

Since then the only additional information I've found is that Flickr  
stores accuracy (as an integer) based on the zoom level of the map  
when you place a photo. In fact, if you zoom all the way out and  
place a photo you'll get a notice warning you that the location is  
too approximate and the photograph won't show up at higher zoom levels.

I'll see if I can find out what the range of accuracy numbers is, and  
what scale they correspond to.
