That's an interesting proposal and if it is not possible to do it
right now, it should be possible to add that feature to the Upload
Wizard, but there's a catch: what are the coordinates of this
photo?[0] Do you want to know the coordinates of the photographer or
the coordinates of the monument? I'd prefer to preserve the
coordinates of the photographer - I can even visualize how we could
use that to generate a map of nice spots to take pictures from a
monument. One way to do this is to let geo-tagged photos to override
the auto-filled setting, which is a bit more complicated.
