Description

I'm surprised the Rankine Temperature Scale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rankine_scale) isn't already included in the specification. It seems like an obvious candidate. Can this be added?

With Rankine, the function pairs for Farenheit could be simplified as well. Instead of degf(5 K/9): 9/5 x - 459.67 this could be used degf(1 R): x - 459.67.

Indeed that makes sense to add. So, I suppose it is even simpler than that:

1 R = 9/5 K

isn't it?

Added thus:

<u:unit id="600031" Code="[degR]" CODE="[degR]" isMetric="no"><name>degree Rankine</name><printSymbol>&deg;R</printSymbol><property>temperature</property><value value="5" Unit="K/9" UNIT="K/9"/></u:unit>
