FWIW, Gecko used to have support for didot (as 'dt') and ciceros (as 
'cc') where 15dt = 16pt and 1cc = 12dt (as in back in 1997, removed 
somewhere along the way for conformance reasons). It also had feet 
('ft'), miles ('mi'), meters ('m'), kilometers ('km'), and extra 
typographic units 'en' (1/2 'em') and 'cap' (cap height, which still 
seems useful, especially with the new drop cap support).
