The Gravitational constant is a conversion constant between units - no
more significant than the fact there are 2.54... centimetres per inch.

The electron mass may be parochial property of where we live, or it
may be derivable from some more fundamental theory. For example, it is
thought that the mass of the proton is given by quantum
chromodynamics, but the calculations are so fierce, that nobody has
achieved this yet.
