Glad you asked.
Here is my proposal in the URL below.
The tarball includes schema and examples. In essense, I propose
that the CoordSystem object realize the standardQuantity, and
contain components which are themselves (realizing) quantities.
Largely, the "coordinate" portion of the STC is subsumed by the
Quantity, and is trimmed out. Also, the "resource" portion of the
STC has been dropped as that looks VOTable specific to me (happy
to be corrected). Otherwise, the STC is rather straighforwardly implemented
and serialized as a Q.
