Heh... because it'd be incredibly confusing?

What I want to know is when the US and Canada will get with the program and 
start using ISO paper sizes like everyone else :-)

Re. floppy sizes, I don't think I've ever heard anyone say 5" floppy, however 
computer illiterate. I believe I have heard 5 1/2" thrown about (to 
incorrectly mean 5 1/4") in the early days of  3.5" adoption.
