>> From a metrics point of view, I have a hard time thinking of a case where 0<unit> means something different from 0 (with the units implied). From an authoring point of view, I agree that most would expect 0 to be clear as m

There is at least one case: temperatures 

0 Kelvin != 0 Celsius != 0 Fahrenheit 

(it doesn't matter for this specific discussion 
but if one day CSS introduces color temperatures
though color temperatures are always expressed 
in Kelvins.)
