That is a good idea. And also  brings up an already asked question. Would it be better to de-generalize the <beacon> element into explicit <cell>, <wifi>, <bluetooth>, and as suggested, <ip> elements?

Pros/cons anyone?

What about adding another optional element to the query to allow the lookup
of location information based on IP address?:

<iq from='hamlet at shakespeare.lit/phone' 
    id='q02' 
    to='location.shakespear.lit' 
    type='get' 
    xml:lang='en-US'>
  <locationquery xmlns='urn:xmpp:locationquery:0'>
    <ip>127.88.22.22</ip>
  </locationquery>
<iq>

Sometimes IP address is "good enough" for applications.

Thanks
