It would help me (and maybe others) if you could please 
  (a) read the previous discussions on whether we need units such as 'true mm', 'true inch', 'true pixel'; this was discussed at length, and while it is possible you have something to add, your points may have already been discussed; 
  (b) try not to imply that the members of this group do not understand what centimeters, inches etc. are; and 
  (c) be clear about what you are objecting to.  Is it the lack of CSS 'true' units?  The fixed ratio of CSS pixels to length units such as point, inch, etc.? Which of the two 'anchor' methods are you particularly concerned about?

Thank you,
