We should also allow for the coordinate reference system to be specified in all

WGS84 has become almost universal for informal geocoordinates, thanks to GPS,
and Wikipedia's mapping tools all assume WGS84 is used, so it's probably
reasonable to assume that as a default, but there's lots of high-resolution
geodata out there with different coordinate reference systems, for which
discarding the CRS will result in significant errors.

Moving to high as this is getting more important with Wikivoyage getting access to this data.

This should be fixed now. We need to test it after next week's deployment.
