Yes, it's definitely possible to address in various ways:
* get used to thinking in 0.01em increments
* use `calc(<tracking> * 0.001em)` (optionally defining 0.001em as a custom property)
* defer to Houdini Custom Units 

(out of which I still prefer `0.015em` to the alternatives, for its terseness)

I also don't believe in sprawling specs that define every possible unit of measurement, but a `mem` would be a tremendous convenience IMO.
