Re: [cf-pointobsconvention] Should Z Coordinates be required?

Yes, I think this is a task that needs to be done. These two lists don't include a third necessary evil, the vertical datum (groan).

It occurs to me that we could document the possible vertical coordinates, ie set up a controlled vocabulary. The WMO has already done so in the GRIB2 format:

 http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/docs/grib2/grib2_table4-5.shtml

or we could refer to these if deemed complete enough.

This could be an appendix that might would be useful to storing any type of 
data in CF.
