Subject: Re: Units of Measure

Look at http://www.unece.org/cefact/, and Pick Recommendation 20 on "Codes for
Units of Measure Used in International Trade".  This references ISO 31:1992
Quantities and units, as well as a few others.

The proposed Petrochemical Open Systems Corp UOM approach may be helpful for
deciding how to encode units of measure in XML, but that seems beyond the scope
of the current CC work.  I also would be hesitant about using the abbreviations
and other features where they conflict with CC naming conventions or
Recommendation 20.

A question, was this proposal developed with knowledge of ISO 31 or UN/ECE
Recommendation 20?
