I'd suggest we leave it to the software developers to choose between
base2 & base10 (at least for the defaults), as they are supposed to know
best what's the custom in their field (e.g. memory size vs. network
bandwidth).  Standardizing on one or the other would be bad for several

But at least let's use correct symbols to go with the chosen multiplier
system...  ;-)
