To be sure. But I think Mr. McGrath missed the point. No one is arguing 
that one must work in metric. Rather, the issue is the native database 
units. We, as users, do not necessarily see these units. If they were in 
metric as has been suggested, we could have exact conversions; if they are 
in inches, conversions will always be approximate.
