units of measure are just examples
Situation: SAREF contains the axiom
saref:UnitOfMeasure rdfs:isDefinedBy <http://www.wurvoc.org/vocabularies/om-1.6/Unit_of_measure> .
and all the instances of units of measures that serve as examples are from OM v 1.8. However, these instances and this annotation are not present in the SAREF TS. The SAREF core ontology should not take one ontology of units of measure specifically. Examples may be provided in a separate document. OM had a v 1.8, now v 2.0 is under development. Alternatives include QUDT or the cdt:ucum datatype.
Proposal: The specification is agnostic of the way of representing units. The ontology file should also be agnostic. Examples of the use of OM will be moved to specific instance files using the ontology under consideration and that people can download to understand how SAREF can be used
