There are cases where an approximate temperature is more useful than a
single scalar number.
For example a drinking fountain may be "chilled", but not operating at a
single fixed temperature.
Similarly there's a big difference in a tropical climate between a building
with A/C and one without.
And a mountain hut with a fireplace, compared to one without.  Neither can
be expressed well as a temperature=.

In many cases what matters is the ability to warm or cool from ambient.
A/C give you the ability to
make a room cooler than ambient, but not hotter.  A fireplace the
opposite.  Thus perhaps instead:


Could apply to pools, spas, hotel rooms, water taps.
