I don't see the unit information in the output either. I also think it
would be great to have this.
On the application end of things, it is quite critical. For instance,
I'm faced with a situation where in order for me to show a line chart
with multiple indicators, I need to allow only the indicators with the
same units. Otherwise, the measure values e.g., a currency amount, and
percentage, would get piled up on the same axis and become meaningless.
The curated approach is the unfortunate alternative. Unless there is an
external document somewhere we could make use of.. but a quick search
didn't reveal anything.
