Say I have a set of coordinates on a page, in "Plain Old HTML".
I can duplicate them in a URL to a site I don't want to link to, and bury that in a comment, where I - or a future editor - may or may not remember to update it, and where it might cause, say, Google to penalise me for attempted spamming.
Or I can wrap them in some simple, semantically-named HTML classes, as was intended by the writers of the HTML specification, and implemented in Geo-uF.
Guess which of those scenarios contains the "overwhelming logic"?

This is relevant to discussion of Geo-uF how, exactly..?
