Makes sense @tomhodgins, but I would add two things:

- I'm not proposing a new unit *per se*; unitless values are allowed in lots of places across CSS.
- A huge part of what bothers me about this is that it's inconsistent. I feel like `line-height` and `letter-spacing` are very closely related, they are basically leading and kerning for CSS, vertical and horizontal spacing. It annoys me that I cannot use the same units between the two properties.
