The document doesn't seem to address how magnitudes are to be handled.
Are they unitless? Do we have a 'mag' unit a la the FITS standard?
What about magnitudes per square arcsecond? If they are unitless how do
we find out that the column is a magnitude? UCD? UType? Do we allow SI
I don't have a strong feeling here, except that I believe this needs to
be discussed explicitly.
