Plenty of unfortunate precedence exists for these units. It is hard to single this one out for rejection. But see ProcedureDefinedUnits for the general concern. We would need to ask for authoritative literature reference which we can put into the specification. Is there another organization who defines this unit? IFCC?

Let's just do it, there is enough precedence and it won't hurt.
