TDWG should track this and consider requiring/recommending its use if it is
accepted by IETF

Subject: [Tc] Geo URI proposal in draft stage in the IETF
To: tc at lists.opengeospatial.org

There is an internet draft that may be of interest to the OGC. I have
provided some review and comments but the authors are seeking additional
feedback. Feel free to contact the authors directly. There are GML
examples in the document.


This document specifies an Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for
  geographic locations using the 'geo' scheme name.  A 'geo' URI
  identifies a physical location in a two- or three-dimensional
  coordinate reference system in a compact, simple, human-readable, and
  protocol independent way.  The default coordinate reference system
  used is WGS-84.
