There are several things unclear or wrong in the current introduction.
- The system uses the force as a base unit, but force is still mass*length/time^2
- The mass unit hyl depends on the definition of the force unit kp, the same mass has a different value in hyl if the kp is locally different
- To avoid this, the kp was defined via the Standard gravity gn (n for nominal) in 1901, since then the kp does not depend on the gravity of the earth
