Applying UOM to the core PI System?

Are there any plans for to merge/combine/replace UOM from AF with the core PI system attribute EngUnits?
It would be nice to force standards at the root of the PI system then in AF give the option to inherit the PI system UOM or use AF's own UOM.

Thoughts from OSI?

Reason: users have freedom to enter what they like for a PI system EngUnit and without any governance this can get ugly.  So you can have "DegC", "C", "Celcius", "DegreesC" etc being entered for on a PI system.  AF does it's job at standarising these but what if AF is not required and simply a PI system is the only required element, you are relying on your own standards written on paper to ensure standard units are enforced.
