You are now alone.
I too want that.

I recommend you check out the IETF (IRTF actually), T2TRF, and look at the
SENML specifications.   It includes specifications for sending data,
including dealing with questions about what units they are in.

There are also various industry-specific consortia, but they tend to be
closed and often terribly stupid.
