This stuff about bogus locations sounds like something that won't get
market usage by many people (like less than 1%), and possibly no
carriers. It seems like "requirements" should be serious market
requirements, otherwise the IETF Geopriv requirements could end up stuck
in the "academically interesting" category and ignored.

From where to where?

From me (via any associated device or 'inheritance') to my Server who'll
answering anybody's request of my location, there should be one location
object transmitted. I don't know what interval is appropriate yet....

A 'pull' request to my Server where the Rule Maker controls my policy
therefore the answers queried of it -- there should be as many locations
given as there are rules made for/by me (and any other target). I think
it'll likely end up being a fairly stable template over time that I move
people or classes of people from one to another category....
