Hi - in this sprint for the BP document, the editors are proposing to
REMOVE BP2 [1].

We think that:
1/ this is not a spatial problem (and so is probably covered by DWBP
somewhere)
2/ the current BP text is ambiguous and not actionable - what are we
telling people to do

I recall that we had a _huge_ discussion about how to encode unit of
measurement (etc.) back in July 2016 ("Units of Measure (BP, SSN,
Coverages,Time?", see my summary post here [2]) but I don't think we drew
any actionable conclusions about Spatial Data?

So, we will REMOVE BP2 ... unless someone can write content to make this
(i) specifically relevant to spatial data, (ii) actionable, and (iii) best
practice that is evident in the wild.

WG members. What do you think?

Jeremy
