A typo in the documentation, more likely. It was GmapKey, but that
seemed to have led to some confusion. So, by not changing the
documentation, I see the confusion continues to reign!

There must always be one (:gmap:) as that markup creates the key. The
(:gmapoint:) is used for more than one point.

In v.2.0 (due out in the next day or two), the (:gma-map:) markup will
generate the map and take no lat/lon input. All lat/lon will be
submitted via (:gma-point:) or (:gma-line:) if you're trying to create
a line. V.2.0 is aimed at simplifying the interface.
