In the future this might be possible:

We have proposed an ITEM-IN-MESSAGE format for sending particular objects to
someone else at a distant location.  With the above discussion, I realized
that one could occasionally send one's position in a message to a loved-one
back home.  This way, even without IGate supervision, one could keep someone
else informed of their position.
