I'd like an indication of the preference for the default unit of the 
temperature= value

Say a mapper tags


The options are to interpret this as;

a) values would be interpreted as degrees Celsius. (Similar to the width 
key default.)
b) values would interpreted by region. Most of the world would be 
Celsius, USA would be Fahrenheit. (Similar to defaults for speed on roads.)
c) No default unit. All entries would require a declaration of the units 
used. Thus this would be an incorrect entry and ignored.

Any other options?

Please indicate your preference a,b or c. (or d etc if they are nominated?)
