That is indeed the question. And the answer is, "with the definition of the
'weight' property in the specification that describes the vocabulary that
contains this property".

satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: What you expose to the user (imperial or metric, fahrenheit or
centigrade or kelvin, lightyears or kilometers or inches, etc) is irrelevant to
how you encode the data. Just make sure your tool serialises the data in the
units that the vocabulary you are using defines the properties to have, and
parse the values in the same way, and then you can display them to the user in
whatever form you like without having to do anything new at all at the syntax
layer.
