  2. If so, how transform tool input will respond to that? Will keyboard input for Translate tool convert "display unit" to BU?
  3. What will happen during geometry export to interchange formats (obj, stl)?

@Andy Davies (metalliandy) hi Andy, this thread is about making Units UI comprehensible, so users could figure it out without first searching for a tutorial on YouTube.
Your complain is about the Unit System itself. Of course presets are basically just py scripts and we can do what ever we want, like change the scale of all objects in the scene to preserve their size in units for eg., but to me it looks like an insane idea.

In the description to this task this stackexchange question is specified as a use case for this feature, where open_mainfile is a much better solution.

empty file is mainly useful when you want to create a file from scratch and save it without having to manually clear the data.
