Micrometres weren't necessarily needed but were more comfortable to use if
resolution was given as point or pixel size instead of the reciprocal dots per
inch, i.e. there should have been a new unit of an existing type, not an
entirely new type with two new units (one of which, 'dpcm', being very
unusual).
