First WD of "Encoding units and unit types in RDF using QUDT"

While the editors draft has been online for a while, I have added some more Unit Ontology - QUDT mappings and updated the matching jQUDT library, and now put the first Working Draft (WD) version online on the Open PHACTS specifications website, ready to accept comments (it's primarily informative, rather than normative):

A big thanks to Ralph Hodgson and the other QUDT authors for developing this ontology and in particularly to have it include a framework and the needed information to interconvert units, which we take advantage of! And I am very much looking forward to the webinar of the QUDT team for the Open PHACTS project in some 10 days.
