I was going to mention that one but it sounded a bit too pornographic to
me... :-P and ExaZuse sounds like we'd have a "contract" or "hit" out on
his life... [sorry, I don't know the British slang for that, but it
wouldn't be good to want to "rub out" the heirs of the guy we're trying to
immortalize by the standard... ;-) ]

P.S. Maybe we could just "skip" those for general use, just like
"nanofarad" capacitors are not normally mentioned...
