I don't see how this would solve the problems. To be honest, I don't see 
a difference.

A delivery unit (as it seems to be the understanding of the DI WG) is a 
collection of resources with one "primary" resource and 0 or more 
"additional" resources, that are fetched by a user agent after fetching 
the primary resource without activation by the user (in XLink terms: 
xlink:actuate="onLoad").

Don't you define the "Web Unit" to be exactly this?
