That's an interesting concept. Better make sure you set your resistors 
up right and keep your temperature range limited, since the max voltage 
across the device is 30V.  And the power supply ripple had better be 
less than 1V (PSRR is 0.1 uA/V at 15V, and 0.5 uA/V at 5V).

What's the tempco of that resistor?

And, you know that the calibration error is +/- 0.5 degree (for the 
better M grade).. Yeah, it's repeatable to 0.1 degree (0.1 uA).
