Product specifications - standardization of units please?

I've noted this before and just hoped it would be resolved. In comparing products, some show the weight in grams and others in ounces on the same comparison page. I'm aware that the input from the manufacturer is probably the input. I'd like to ask that REI take a moment and put all weights of similar items in the same units. Grams is preferred for lighter items. For instance, I was comparing bicycle winter lighting. A couple of items from the same manufacturer even were inconsistent. Yes, I know how to convert, but I think REI can do a better service by standardizing measurements. Weights in grams, lengths in centimeters, clothing waist sizes in inches, clothing inseam lengths in inches, etc. Hoping some day soon all will be metric, but for now, just a bit of consistency.
