As is clear from my posts, it's also the strongest argument in favour of 
adopting the /new/ units!  It all depends on how many authors were using 
the original units correctly as opposed to incorrectly.  My point was 
that it's a valid concern that authors who were using them correctly now 
find the rug pulled from under them.
