Is this the only field that still uses such standards.... or is it just a lack of an International standard?
eg. In the electrical industry here we size cables according to an actual cross sectional area size like 1mm sq. -generally good for 10A @ 240V AC. 2.5mm sq is obviously a larger cross sectional area and has lower resistance accordingly.
This is based on reality, not some stoopid 'gauge' system. The only stuff measured in gauge here in the past was sheet metal. Even so that stupid system was abandoned way back in the 1970's.

I only bought the roll of cable because it was on close-out at the Home Despot store for 2/3th's off. I MUST run out and buy some new super expensive cables because the electrons have all been pushed to one end!
