Description

Bel 10 nanovolt is the only unit defined with a period in its simple unit term. Should this, instead be an apostrophe? I.E. B[10'nV]

since square brackets can only exist as matched pairs, and "Within a matching pair of square brackets the full range of characters [...] can be used." So it is not necessary. It is definitely not a defect.

I propose not to act on this because it would add an unnecessary synonym. People should not build parsers that would fail on this, because if they did, something cold break them tomorrow.
