>>> you are free to nest microformats within one another, as long as
the semantics make sense. You can also out an ADR inside a GEO, then
you are avoiding more of the polygon versus point debate. The address
is a more specific GEO point than just the City/State/Country.

Then, why dont adr have an optional geo field? OK, it is possible to geocode an
an existing address but wouldnt it provide a better interaction in the machine
world to embed the location info as coordinates as well. Since many of
the geocoders
stand on statistical methods, this may even be beneficial to take this
technology one step further.
