[CF-metadata] add_offset for time dimension

Dear John and Benno

No, CF doesn't specifically exclude add_offset for coordinate variables, but it
only talks about it regarding packing data variables, and in Table A it is
listed only as an attribute of data variables, not coordinate variables. I
think that's because coordinate variables don't take up so much space anyway so
there is not the same need for packing.

Best wishes
