[Tagging] Straw pole Temperature=objective default unit?

I think if no unit is specified then it should be taken to mean Celsius
worldwide.  To define the unit explicitly use n[.n][C|F].  We should also
state that the degree symbol is not required (and maybe that it should
never be present).

At least, that's my opinion.
