I have spoken with both Marcus Goetz (IndoorOSM) and Andreas Hubel. I
should familiarize myself more with OSM 4D.

It sounds like at least the four of as should talk in more detail to
merge into a single proposal. We will have to discuss over Skype so
anyone else interested please let us know.

Perhaps afterwards we can bring this back to the general community to
discus any effects on existing renderers and editors.
