Those who would be affected most are small scale manufacturers, who would (in any metrication plan) be given 10+ years to retool.
i use the metric system in the lab every day. it definitely is easier and more effective, but i don't really see a formal transition to using it everywhere as a priority. it will probably happen more informally, with the metric system being used in areas that it wasn't before just because it works better. and if our car speedometers stay with MPH, no big deal. i actually prefer that one.
So if you're basing your thoughts off of them ... yeah, they're definitely the exceptions here.

It's been tried and we did give it a fair go against what was an overwhelming public reaction of "Hell NO!". People just refused. There is nothing that indicates the public has changed their minds in this regard. So no, it'd be a waste of time.
It's as if Kennedy decided to go to the moon, but never created NASA and instead gave $10 billion to PBS to run TV shows about the moon.
