I strongly agree.    (02)

Every application is likely to need other domain-dependent
representations, such as a street address.  And it is also
likely to need various transformations, such as deriving
speed down those roads and streets.    (03)

All the units of measure are interrelated, and the ontology
should include all of them.    (04)
