An issue that comes up a lot in spatial datasets is that of precision and accuracy (the fact that Magna Carta was signed in 1215 is accurate, just not very precise, saying it was signed at 1215-06-15T00:00:00 is precise but inaccurate). It occurs in general datasets too but it's particularly acute for spatial.

How you might express these ideas in the DQV?
