Having flagged this on a past post .. I've now moved to the comments stage.

Page: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Temperature

It may be used with the tags shower, water_tap, bath ... and possibly 
other things present or future.


Default unit is degrees Celsius, this is an SI unit.. not a base unit 
but then few things are, e.g. minutes, hours are not base SI units. See 
http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/units.html for an American 
explanation. Kelvin is not in common use due to the numbers being too 
cumbersome for day to day use of common temperatures, thus Celsius is used.

Rendering is a problem .. so far I have

high temperature; red colour of wavy lines above standard rendered 
feature? Or a red in colour box around standard rendered feature?

adjustable temperature

Cold temperature; blue in colour box around standard rendered feature?

Adjustable temperature? Box around standard rendered feature, red in 
colour at the top fadding to blue at the bottom?
