I'm italian and i can read and understand english, but if I read "12 miles" i
know "mile" as measurement unit, but i'm not practice with
in-my-mind-conversion to my more familiars kilometers

another useful feature for <measure> can be real-time currency conversion

<measure unit="EUR" value="1234.33"> 1.234,33</measure>

ua can show/tip the money as specified by the user locale

in plus crawlers, bot, can understand better technical data (and prices, and
much more) independently by page localization and/or page language
