Tor bandwidth notation

Could some future release of Tor be made to use
[data]bits and not [storage]bits? Every megabuck
router I've used [cisco/juniper/etc] uses bits, not
bytes. 1 megabit/s = 1000000 bits/s. ISP's sell pipes
in bits/s. Hosters just convert that to bytes/month :(
It just seems so weird, and a pain, to have to be
converting everything back and forth for a pure
network application like Tor.
And yeah, I use netstat -w 8 by default :)
