This is the sort of thing I expect to emerge from the places that use Bitcoin "on the street." We should be watching how local wallet software displays bitcoin amounts, letting the standards write themselves over time. The units debate (bits, millibits, etc) has been going on nearly as long as I've known about Bitcoin and yet most tools display standard bitcoin amounts (1 unit = 1e8 satoshi).
