Subject: Re: GPS info in IP addresses

   Therefore, I would like to further this (collaborative) effort with
   others who would find this dialogue valuable, but not in an
   inapporopriate list, as this one appears to be.  Tony, do you have any
   suggestions as to the establishment of, or the existence of, a group
   that is furthering the notion that geographic information about computer
   equipment and other internet devices will be useful knowledge to have?

I don't know of any group interested in this, but that means nothing.  To
start something official, you should talk to an area director (probably
Applications area).  

Personally, I recommend that you take the shortcut of setting up a mailing
list and just go ahead and write the document.  Implementation >> politics.
