The commonly used units of measure have changed over the centuries. The numeric value for the speed of light was measured before it was known that light was an electromagnetic wave and how electromagnetic waves were produced. The scientific community adopted a set of units of measures that were originally developed for joint commercial, scientific and common use. There is an on going effort by the various metrology organizations to update them. There is no need to change the generally accepted units of measure for commercial and common use, but scientific units of measure need major improvements.
