weather report default units should be metric

Description of problem:
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_System_of_Units )
There is international standard for units, somehow I have feeling applications should offer it as default settings.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add weather report applet to panel
2. Open it's settings
The default unit settings aren't standard.
Standard metric units.
As I don't wish to start holy war, wouldn't it be good to look at your timezone (as it's often more acurate than locale) and if you aren't from Liberia, Myanmar and the United States it should be in metric.
The weather applet leaves it to translators to pick the appropriate default for their locale.
