Oh, I totally agree! My point is that the other mapping isn't the
right approach because it doesn't handle a whole swath of use cases.
The one I'm proposing can act as a super set of the other (as in, can
handle that use case too).

I thought I read that whole series and I don't remember reading about
the unit suffix. But I'll take a closer look. I've chosen to keep the
DT units at least as "high of a resolution" as what the APIs accept
today. The APIs take KB/s. So I make sure DT can capture KB/s
differences. If we all agree that KB/s is "too accurate" then I think
we should change everything to MB/s.
