It's not a contradiction, it's a proposal.

Computers are very good at removing spaces (  s/ //g ), and converting

Humans are bad at getting default units correct (witness the USA Hubble
Telescope).

Once the proposal is hashed out, the intent is to populate the same set of
guidelines to all pages.
