Comment(by ahocevar):

 Thanks @karney for the pointer to GeographicLib and this great
 contribution. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to review, so just a
 quick comment:

 One thing that comes to mind would be that instead of adding a new
 getTrueGeodesicArea method, it would make sense to check for the
 availability of GeograpicLib, use it if available, and otherwise fall back
 to Vincenty. Maybe this mechanism could be implemented without adding
 Util.distGeodesic and Util.destinationGeodesic methods. I'm saying this
 because we don't want to increase the size of Util.js unless inevitably
