I am confused about the definition of att.dimensions ("provides
attributes for describing the size of physical objects") in conjunction
with its members: while att.dimensions makes sense for elements like
<space>, <gap> or <width>, I wonder what the "size of physical objects"
might be in the case of elements such as <age>, <date> or <sex>?
This issue has been touched upon at
<https://sourceforge.net/p/tei/feature-requests/470/> already, but I
wonder how all these elements ended up as members of att.dimensions in
the first place. I suspect one wanted to have @precision? Or is there
anyone actually using things like <death quantity="9"> at all? Why not
simply remove these elements from att.dimensions again?
