I don't understand why we couldn't find real world examples of  
measurements.  There are measurements published all over the web.  If  
we're treating prices as measurements, it's difficult to find a web  
page that isn't an example of monetary measurements.  Do you mean you  
can't find examples of the specific markup you're proposing?  We  
don't need examples of that.  We just need examples of the problem,  
not the solution.  If we had examples of the solution, we'd be done

I'm not sure.

I don't know.  I think it looks fine as an abstract idea, but how  
would it work in real web pages?  We need to look at a lot of real  
web pages to evaluate whether something will work on the real web.   
It can be a lot of tedious work collecting and analyzing these  
examples, but I don't see any viable alternative.
