[Dael Jackson @ www-style (2017-02-13): [CSSWG] Minutes Seattle F2F 
2017-01-11 Part VI: Writings Modes, CSS Tables, Values & Units 
4](http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2017Feb/0053.html) 
Traditional pica notation is discussed under the heading “Adding older
 typographic units”. Nobody engaged in the F2F discussion seems to 
have read this issue.

My current minimal suggestion would be to add a note to css-values to 
remind authors that traditional _&lt;pica>p&lt;point>_ and _&lt;x>/16 
in_ syntaxes can already be expressed in CSS as `calc(`_&lt;pica>_`pc 
+ `_&lt;point>_`pt)` and `calc(`_&lt;x>_`in /16)`, respectively, and 
that a sixteenth `in` is exactly equal to `6px` in CSS.
