Concrete wording is a binomial with which I have only passing familiarity, as you all know.  Sorry :-)

To the specific example in the example though, perhaps I can point to a useful shortcut.  US NOAA (and the National Weather Service) provides their forecasts in an XML Format (DWML) and this is split between a timetable and current observations.  This can be un-split and and the timetable reused to provide a framework for apps.  The timetable is one dimensional across Longitudinal lines.  As a practical matter, just having the timetable template available to apps is a leap forward - the immediate future has a namespace.  

Obviously Temperature is not very smooth along Latitudinal lines, but normally distributed statistics are functional equivilents (a Fourier Transform) of the timetable axis alone.  IMHO, a 16 "day" cycle which avoids phantom tides in the metrics of Social Networks would be a better.  The "Open World Assumption" is not the Sidereal Time assumption, is it ? 

The service details are here:  http://graphical.weather.gov/xml/

I've made some examples where current observations are stripped and sunrise/sunset merged. I can give links to those, but the "big idea" is seasonal (growing) season dependence overlay for linked data identifiers, which can then be used as persistant.  Timestamps are a lot to inflict on a poor little Smart Phone, I think.

We did, based on TimBL's 5 star plan (see bottom of [1]). Improvements via pull requests are welcome via [2]  - alternatively, if you don't have a concrete wording,  you might want to raise an issue as well, there ;)
