There is an existing trac ticket http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5353
to include the GPS information along with the other meta data being
extracted. There are a couple good reference links in there too. That
ticket was rejected at the time as plugin territory.
I would argue that it's time to reconsider as GPS in photos has become
much more mainstream. There are now millions of iPhones, and a growing
list of other devices, out there now embedding GPS meta data into
photos. This functionality would be a perfect companion to the
WordPress iPhone app and have many other uses as well.
Now as to what we do with the data after it's extracted and stored, I
agree that is still best handled by themes and plugins.
