Another good example here is wind in Athletic sprint events. If the athlete or the run has tailwind and the athlete ran faster than the world record, the record would not be accepted as the tailwind was to strong. 
IAAF always puts the head/tailwind in their results in sprint events.

Here is an example

For this reason, QualitativeValue has always has a valueReference property which can be used to provide contextual information (e.g. the temperature at which another value was obtained).
