Units of measure should not have multipliers built into them. There is a separate field for the multiplier. The offending UOMs are: "dB", "dBm", "kg", and "kg2".


Use units of measure "B", "Bm", "g", and "g2".
Use multipliers "d" and "k" as needed.
This is more in keeping with the design of the standard.

ok - so conclusion is - TISSUE not accepted - no change 13 Nov 11 Ballot Period
there is here definitly a backward compatibility issue. we can not change an existing unit to another semantic. 13 Oct 11 Discussion (red)
in principle, from the viewpoint of the philosophy of the standard, I agree with the proposal. But as far as I understand, the SI unit for mass is kg and not g. Is that an issue or can we chane to g?

Are there any issues with backwards compatibility?
