I don't think so, since second is the basic SI unit of time, while 
centiminutes as 0.6s look a bit awkward... let's say, for a few seconds, 
OK? :^)

Well, the micro-fortnight is a well documented unit of time, see jargon file. 
But at this opportunity, I'd like to mention the nanocentury.

Ahem.

For something completely different...

What can I do to further the de-DE-trad, de-DE-1996 and the other 
proposals? 
Are there open questions, formal issues, procedures? 

I don't want to distract from the centiminutes and the metric vs. other 
systems, but I am still interested in the issue of tagging the lately 
deformed, err, reformed german orthography and its traditional 
counterpart.
