In general, you really want to be able to have additional levels of
qualification. For instance, MUO has the ability to assert units of
measure on n-ary observations, as well as to provide prefUnit
annotations on properties. An ontology that generates property URIs
for every quality and unit of measure would be huge and very
cumbersome, and I think the consensus is to annotate your own
properties with units of measure.
