[UDUNITS #PIK-524714]: xlink dictionary references for GCM model output re udunits2 and ISO19115


The kilogram is in the base-units database because the kilogram is the base 
unit of mass in the SI unit system, which is the default unit system of the 
UDUNITS package.

The names "second" and "sec" are not in the base-units database because that 
database was not designed to hold names, only symbols.

I see no need to revisit these decisions.

> I am wondering if you are considering the following changes ...
> 1)  making kg a derivative of g instead of vice versa as it is currently (
> g is in udunits2-derived.xml and kg in udunits2-base.xml )
> 2)  including "sec" and an alias of second in udunits2-base.xml instead of
> locating it in udunits2-common.xml
> or explain the rationale for the current assignments.
