Hi,

Can anyone point me in the right direction of standard vocabularies to
use when referencing currencies or weights and measures?

As an example of what I mean, I can do the following for primitives
using the xsd vocabulary:

<foo:bar rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#int">123</
foo:bar>

but what I want to do is along the lines of:

<foo:bar rdf:datatype="http://example.org/currency#GBP">1.23</foo:bar>

or

<foo:bar rdf:datatype="http://example.org/weight#kg">1.23</foo:bar>

If you need further context for my request, see:
