So far, I have done fairly much as much as you have you have suggested and to a point it works. The 'well enough' part is what concerns me. My problem here is that I can not foresee what units I should be searching for. Would the addition of a PID(s) not be a far more elegant solution? What would be the disadvantage of such an addition?

The addition of PID(s) would circumvent the problem of non SI units being added to the list of pre-defined units, which in turn lead to the flood gates of imperial and arbitrary units being declared.

By the by, I've only just figured that DB is an IEC and not an SI unit, being a ratio rather than a quantitative measurement. Something new every day eh!
