[Mondrian] Degenerate facts

There are times where it is desirable to treat dimensional data as fact
data.  For example, you may want to report on "Store Sqft" dimensionally (to
view Profit by Store Sqft, for example), or you may want to sum or average
the value (to get the total Store Sqft by Warehouse).  Similarly for a
dimension like "Age"--you may want to view a sum or average of ages, or view
a breakdown by age.

Has there been any consideration of adding support for degenerate facts to
Mondrian?
