We already have such a unit, the tau-radian, spelled "turn".  (Short for TaURadiaN, obviously; @fantasai plz don't get mad at me for stealing your joke ^_^)

Adding pi-radians just to eliminate a factor of two is the hard sell here. (Particularly when the tauradian has additional benefits going for it, namely that it's easy to explain as "one turn around the circle".)
