Hello Francisco

Thanks for your feedback :)

A new option pushed on the table recently is a mix of both: unitofmeasure would 
define the interfaces, and JScience would provides an implementation of them. So 
the relationship between "unitofmeasure" and "JScience" would be similar to the 
relationship between GeoAPI and Geotk/GeoTools.

I also realized recently that OGC already adopted UCUM (defined by 
www.unitsofmeasure.org) in some of their specifications, so having at least the 
core interfaces defined in unitsofmeasure may be the easiest approach to justify 
at OGC.
