Since you don't mention the projection, and Dublin Core's default is to
wooly to be used, and only lets you define it as a string literal anyway, I
don't like this for lat/lon. As it's much easier if we can get people to
agree on a projection we should by preference use a predicate which limits
users to one, they can still then use others.
Also, contact:stateOrProvince looks dodgy, using a region specific 2 letter
code without specifying the region. (although maybe since country is also
defined more unambigously we're okay)
