Default Why don't manufacturers....

...use a standard unit to indicate the amount of flex on their boards so that the flexibility between boards across multiple manufacturers can be compared easily? I'm not sure why companies still use "Flex-o-meters" with a system of arbitrary numbers that don't tell you much of anything useful in the grand scheme of things.

Would using a universally accepted unit just make too much sense?
