We just haven’t had the first RFC yet that needs to discuss Mößbauer spectroscopy.
Or maybe a Schrödinger equation (or Schrödinger’s cat).
How about Ångström?  (Fortunately, that is not an SI unit, but André-Marie Ampère gave his name to the ampere.)
And I’m still using 50 Ω coax and PCB traces that are some µm thick.
