    Lets hope this system doesn't take root.. their aim is clearly to own
    a way of encoding positions for profit and control .. but it raises
    some interesting questions. It claims to have imposed a rectangular 3m
    square grid on the earth, as the surface is topologically a sphere
    this is not possible as it is not parallelizable. It would be a bit
    like a crystal with defects or small irregularities. Wonder how they
    chose these small deviations? And is the translation to lat and long
    based on WGS 84?
