Hi Kerry,

there has been some positive feedback on mailing lists regarding
establishing a BP that we can then re-use within more specific BPs,
regarding a consistent pattern for describing the attributes of
spatio-temporal values - UoM, CRS, precision etc,  and how to attach these
to datasets, structures (e.g RDF-QB dimension definitions) and actual data
values.  Needs to handle valid requirements for labels, URIs and formal
models (including ontologies and micro-formats possibly) . Its too complex
a thing for a beginner to address - but hopefully tractable for us to
identify BP here and then use it consistently in examples at least.

IMHO Too many times in the BP we have had to resort to references dataset
metadata as a "possible solution" and not be able to offer a more concrete
example of how to encode such things in data. Its also cross-cutting across
at least the Time, Josh's :spatial ontology" and coverage work - so i think
its a plenary topic to at least put a marker on the plan for handling this.

Can we devote a short discussion slot to this - enough to maybe define it
as an issue and assign an action to someone (me if necessary) to have a go
drafting such a BP and finessing references - or someone else to make the
case to reject it as unnecessary :-)
