Indoor GIS with Wp7

Professor Mike Goodchild says

the average American only spends 13 percent of the time outdoors. GIS-based services help us find restaurants and hotels, but they offer almost no support for navigating in the complex indoor spaces of shopping centers, hospitals, mines, or airports.

I still get disoriented at the Dev summit. I’d like to be able to see a floor plan map of the conference center, oriented to north centered on my location. It seems like the WiFi routers could be used for in door geolocation. However I don’t see anything in Wp7 that would estimate my location based on relative strengths of nearby wifi routers.
