Good point. However, I think it is still good to include the conversion factor between substance and item to make a model more explicit. We can use the avogadro constant in the conversion factor even. It just feels a bit strange to convert units implicitly in one place and explicitly in all other places. When using a derived unit for a substance (ex. nanoMole), the unit definition will be needed to make the conversion. This means that you can no longer ignore units and simulate the model correctly. However, adding the conversion factor will allow us to maintain this feature.
