Yeah, our referencing expert really like having everything super spec
compliant. If you give feedback about a layer without so much dependency
then maybe it'll influence hi to make a lighter version, though I wouldn't
hold my breath.

It's a jsr, jsr-108. http://sourceforge.net/projects/jsr-108/ Though
unfortunately it's lost momentum. I forget the geotools plans for units,
some other project was maybe going to take over.

Cheers, though it's definitely the work of many, many people. Glad you
can extract something useful from it.
