Subject: RE: [emergency] RE: OGC UoM Best Practices guidance

I see the logic.  Reading it, however, brings out the journeyman developer response of: "this is too &^%$$# much work and too easy to screw up in my code."   This will take real, by the numbers, "UOM for Dummies" documentation for about 85% of the folks working in our domain. And that may be generous.   If we follow this we are going to need lots of very clear examples.  Especially, since it would require us to break our current rule of avoiding attributes as much as possible.
