It's teh 'center of gravity' of the bonk spectrum, that is, the centroid
of the spectrum considered as a distribution.  It's intended to be a
sort of 'spectral centroid' along the lines of David Wessel's old idea,
but measuring the centroid in 'bonk's might correlate bette with perceived
brilliance.  The word 'temperature' is intended as an analog to
'color temperature' which I believe is a corresponding concept for
optical spectra.
