Great answer, thanks. I hadn't heard of OpenJUMP. (You might want to link to it in your answer, openjump.org )

comment What would a map of the world look like if lat/longs were treated as projected coordinates?
And "equirectangular, equidistant cylindrical, simple cylindrical, or rectangular" apparently!

comment Standard for geospatial CSV with either lat/lon or region encoding
Yeah, my intention is very much requiring EPSG:4326 for all. The great majority of CSVs seem to use that anyway.

Projected coordinates are definitely forbidden, if that's what you mean. (And yes, currently some datasets are in UTM etc, and yes, they're a pain.)

comment Standard for geospatial CSV with either lat/lon or region encoding
I'm proposing to explicitly label the columns lat/lon or postcode - not guessing by contents. Can you elaborate on the MGA/Lamberts problem? Does saying "EPSG:4326" make it go away? :)

comment Alternatives to GeoRSS for time-sensitive point data
Also - thanks, I didn't know about simple. It doesn't seem to be totally complete though - which fields are required? Seems moderately weird that GeoRSS simple isn't necessarily RSS or GML.

comment Alternatives to GeoRSS for time-sensitive point data
"human should be reading this anyway" - in practice, open data tends to be seen by a lot of people when they're exploring datasets, assessing how easy it is to integrate the data etc. Developers seem to be much more enthusiastic about JSON based data than XML.
