Objective standard setting more stable than Angoff

Standardized Measurement

"There indeed is one, and only one, metric system, (properly SI, Système International) - always the latest revision of the international standard that describes it. For engineers worldwide, the standard is ISO 1000. This standard is subject to change, as any standard must be, and a user is expected to follow the latest version, which is the practice with all standards."

"The standard describes a universal, international language of measurement."

"Essentially, all [physical] units created in modern times are metric in every country of the world, including the United States. The evolution is coordinated by an international committee in which the United States has participated since 1875."

Stan Jakuba, Mechanical Engineering, Jan. 2001

But the human sciences delight in creating locally-defined, uncoordinated, non-metric "units" ...

Life is trying things to see what works.
