Thank you everyone for the great response to this post.
I'd like to poll everyone's thoughts regarding the appropriate next steps.
It seems to me we have good support for this initiative. 
It isn't as clear to me yet what the best way forward is. My instincts are
leaning towards spending time to capture requirements, identify key use
cases, and crucial standards. The thinking is that with this information
captured, we're in a better position to review the implementations available
to identify which candidates are best positioned to satisfy those needs.
I would like to echo Andrew Turner's comments that we're focusing on API's
that can be used offline rather than a web service. (though it's good to see
great web service projects out there!)
Input, thoughts, feedback are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance,

Hi Everyone,
A few of us have been talking and thought the timing might be right to try
and start projects to work on Geocoding and Routing. We're still gathering
information and checking to learn who's interested.
If you are interested, please check out the following wiki's and add your
name in the section you are interested in. 
There are experts out there that are far more knowledgeable about Geocoding
and Routing than I am. To these good people: please feel empowered to make
modifications, provide feedback in whatever way you feel most comfortable.
