http://microformats.org/wiki/geo-brainstorming#latitude_longitude_shorthand mentions:

If a "geo" property lacks explicit "latitude" and "longitude"
subproperties, then the "geo" property is treated like any other string
property (e.g. following rules for parsing <abbr title>, <img alt>
etc.), where that string value has the same literal syntax as specified
in RFC 2426 section 3.4.2: single structured value consisting of two
float values separated by the SEMI-COLON character (ASCII decimal 59),
specifying latitude and longitude, in that order.

My question is, whether the following is, should, or should not be a
valid geo representation:

class="geo">Montréal, Quebec, Canada</a>
