Fair enough. Someone in this discssion said "geo" was locked as it's  
a subset of hCard, which is locked too.
If geo is extendable that's even better!

  - Elevation is the main feature that is missing
  - Elevation could be positive and negative
  - Timestamps for geo data should be optional but possible
  - How about coordinate formats / map projection / dates?
