seeking developer who included the "geo" URI scheme

 I'm one of the creators of the "geo" URI scheme, currently in draft
status in the Internet Engineering Task Force (  ). I've
noticed that Android includes support for that URI scheme, although
slightly different than what we defined in the standardization

The Android API document  is here: 

The difference is that Android also supports a query component to the
URI, which is currently not included in the standardization proposal.

I'm seeking feedback from the developer who included the "geo" URI in
the API - since the standardization is in draft status, early feedback
could still make its way into the standardization.
