Please comment on the geo-loc-option draft announced in the following.

While we are asking for a moment in the DHC WG at the Atlanta meeting, 
the semantics of this option are to be discussed in the GEOPRIV WG.
We hope the format will be useful more widely, but it is designed to
fit the circumstances of DHCP.

The concept of this draft is different from the recently discussed 
draft-critchley-dhc-location-option-00.txt in several ways:
1) the location configured is that of the DHC client, not the server,
2) the encoding is binary for economy,
3) the resolution of each measure is under explicit control, and
4) an immediate purpose is to give wired IP telephones the location 
   they would send when calling to report an emergency.

There is, of course, no reason to wait for Atlanta to comment.
