1. from IP get your location on Earth (or somewhere else? :-D), no need
for precision, if time zone is OK, than location is precise enough.

Where on Earth are these addresses :

10.0.0.1
172.16.0.1
192.168.0.1
127.0.0.1

and indeed

fc00::/7

What about systems with more than one interface / address - which one do you pick ?

Also realize not all computers may be on Earth ( ISS, etc. )

If you build it, don't build it so it only works only now and in only the simplest situations.
