In point-set topology, we have definitions of dimension like the Lebesgue covering dimension and the inductive dimension, but this doesn't seem to help in the case of a singularity, which isn't actually part of the manifold.

If you define a singularity by saying that a spacetime has a singularity if there are incomplete geodesics, then maybe you need to define the dimension of the singularity by saying something about the dimensionality of the set of incomplete geodesics...?
