Actually what do you think of this : the author chooses a measurement 
system and Blender *adapts* it's grid to it, so one could benefit of 
that when modelling. Also this way the models would have real dimensions 
and if you happened to open a metric model in your, let's say, imperial 
set up it would measure the right amount of feet and inches, *no 
conversion needed* ? Does it make sense ?
