The nearest things to universals I know of in the sciences are PSI 
units of measurement (I think I've said this before here). I'm not 
aware of a standard markup for them :(

See David Megginson's post for what might actually be useful to the 
aircraft industry - I observe it's closer to units of measurement 
than mathematatical/set theoretic notions of types us computer folk 
seem to be fond of.
