  - It was suggested to add types for longitude, latitude, postal
    code, country-code. Do we go there or do we leave these for other
    modules to define? It seems such definitions should go into
    draft-ietf-netmod-geo-location.

  - Geo location is covered by draft-ietf-netmod-geo-location
    (so do nothing).

  - For country codes, there is ISO 3166, which defines two-letter,
    three-letter, and numeric country codes. I assume people wanted
    two-letter codes (as used in the DNS), i.e. they want DE and not
    DEU. But note that it is GB and not UK, i.e., what we commonly
    use in the DNS may not be exactly ISO 3166. (The devil is always
    in the details.)

  - For postal codes, it is unclear what the requirements are or what
    a proper definition for postal codes is. It is not entirely clear
    what the authoritative definition of the format of postal codes
    is, perhaps the Universal Postal Union.

  - Options: (i) do nothing or (ii) add a country code definition
    only or (iii) add both a country code definition and a postal
    code definition (which might be to some extend vague)

  - Proposal: do nothing
