a 2-D not 3-D WGS84 is the default for GeoRSS, but there is also an
elev attribute whose default is number of meters above geoid (e.g. GPS
elevation). For an imprecise geoannotation, height relative to terrain
would probably be more useful (georss:floor but that is in units of
building floors). A perspective might also be important (not currently
defined in GeoRSS) if the geoannotation has been applied to one side
of a vertical feature.
