Various proposals over the years have been made for a Geolocation API in 
HTML5. Since the W3C has now started work on a Geolocation API 
specification, I do not intend to add such an API to HTML5.

If you are interested in this work I recommend following this mailing 


As far as I can tell, all the feedback that had been sent to this list has 
already been taken into account by that list, so I will not forward all 
the feedback to the W3C as I sometimes do when feedback that was sent to 
the WHATWG list becomes more relevant for another specification.
