@tomhughes to answer your question about preversing privacy, most map apps share location using an HTTP link, so that leaks the info to anyone who can see the network traffic (anyone on the same wifi, wifi AP owner, ISP, government observer, telecom, etc). Using a link also requires that the user access the network to find the information in the link (especially if it is a non-OSM shortlink).  A `geo:` link does not require network connectivity to work.
