Comment:
Unit of Measure (UOM) support;

If HTML can make a tag with well know units of measure, like miles, pounds,
grams, etc as first class attribute types. For example, if there a tag like
<uom type="pounds">100</uom> where we want to show "100 lbs" on screen.

  If the web browser, want to see in kilograms, the browser can have drop-down
next to that to convert. or user preference (or country preference), can
automatically show in local locale.
