I'm kind of ambivalent to the singular/plural/spelling issues.
The main thing I object to is breaking apart a unit name. Maybe a
better example would be tower pound. IMHO that should not be
tower::pound (it should be English::tower_pound), so nor should
nautical miles be nautical::miles. Maybe
SI::accepted::nautical_miles, or just SI::nautical_miles?
