What about converting to mercator then....

The biggest issue of storing coordinates aren't with the nodes it the
GPX track points that matter right? Perhaps it would be a good idea to
convert all the trackpoints to mercator, then you will have the values
in integers and the server won't have to do so much processing on each

This would lead to something that is a tad bit more "intuitive" than
using a own format.

oooh off to work again
