you need the dimension time to be shared, so change to

is there any good reason for a dimension not to be shared?
from a documentation point of view, having two unrelated dimensions with
the same name
sounds like a bad thing.
I would reccomend to always make dimensions shared, the only possible exception
is for char lengths.
The reason its there is to support other file formats that often dont share
dimension, eg HDF.
public Dimension addDimension(String dimName, int length);
unless its the unlimited dimension, in which case you need the other one.
