It do create privacy issues as the general user on the Internet today
doesn't create the HTML, various software programs do that. Those programs
already today include information automatically without the user doing
anything, and if one add geographical information to that, the privacy
issues gets even more important than they are today.

So, the IESG does not agree with you on this point.
