 Given we don't strip the data from uploads itself, it'd be merely making
 the data more accessible to WordPress plugins & themes.
 I would assume we'd store it in an underscored field `_location_data`
 maybe? which would mean that unless a plugin/theme chose to expose it, it
 shouldn't be queryable in any way.
