How would you store the products? I don't really like the idea of
unintuitive limits on the composition of base units (e.g. you can
represent 2^31, but not 19^31) -- on the other handworking with
arbitrarily-sized compile-time integers doesn't sound a lot less
complicated than dealing with sorted lists, so maybe you have
something different in mind?
