And while we're innovating, we could bring back the duodecimal system which had a resurgence a century ago.  I have a copy of Britton and Brown's "Illustrated Flora"  That used the superscript circle or degree mark for feet, the single stroke or quote for inches and the double stroke or quote for lines (twelfths of inches).

And we could always compromise by using Rankine for our temperature scale.
