Yea, because it is well known that they correlate, like C and F. 

The loads idea requires people to actually know what the ratio is for mapping and the data user to be able to show the correct unit for the user. Also, the load might vary a bit and not line up cleanly, so it might display a 1.2 load washer or something.

Maybe it is best to have a single unit (kg?) and have the data provider translate the information into loads, but it seems that mapping a million washing machines that are all labeled in one unit for one continent in its native unit is good for mappers to get it mapped correctly.
