Up to this point, the "units" attribute has really just been a stub with no real implementation, and we haven't yet defined different unit types yet (such as frequency, cents, etc.).  So this is just a simplification which should not impact any content out in the field.  So far, we've seen no urgent need, but if we later decide that this is important, then we can add it back in, defining the precise types.
