Well, we just conducted usability tests on a local search application
that displayed lat and lon and most users we tested on were confused
as to what they were. You could put your argument under any of the
other emails, though, as we do want to have geo in web sites, and
assume it is useful for people to copy and paste, print out or
whatever. I agree with patrick that an interface element that explains
what that is before showing it is the best option.
