Measure microformat

Currently this microformat is in exploratory stage. Contributions should focus on real examples from the Web, existing formats/encoding of measures.

The problem

Measures are omnipresent on the Web (ex. description of product or service offering, temperatures), but they differ from locale to locale (ex. Fahrenheit vs. Celsius, Pound versus Kilogram) making comparison and matching of offerings difficult.

The Measurement Unit microformat will enable unambiguous description of measures and as a result easier comparison and matching of offerings.
