    Rationale

    Work Item 47729 addressed the issue of the primacy of SI units in general and the use of the terms mass versus weight in specific. That work resulted in a successful ballot. However, during the ballot process, there were some extensive comments on further improvements in the standard regarding the use of SI units. Upon the Task Groups review, it was agreed that a number of the recommendations had merit and this work item is needed to ballot those suggested changes.
