Agreed, picas are extremely useful units and are still commonly taught
 and used in other software, but they're best used with points as the 
fraction, not a decimal fraction. Not having the traditional 
(pica)p(point) notation in CSS has been an oversight, let's fix it. 
Yeah it's a new parsing behavior, but I don't see it as being 
fundamentally incompatible, at least no worse than adding scientific 
notation was.
