Default Units in Status Messages

Hello All,

We are working on a product implementing the STS_OVERTEMP message. The standard describes this as having two data values:

Data value 1 : Sensor Number
Data value 2 : Temperature
Status ID Description : Sensor %d over temp at %d degrees C

My question is, our unit has temperature sensors that have an accuracy of one decimal point (so can read e.g. 50.5C). That is handled by the sensor description of the unit. So what variety of temperature should we use in the data values of the status message - should it be the value in degrees C (e.g. 50) , or should it be the value as it would come from the SENSOR_VALUE command (e.g. 505)?
