It the metric system that's arbitrary. Based on ten's ? Lousy factor retinue.

The Imperial System has an an entire system of weights based on base 2 - awaiting the computer era.
16oz = 2^4 ozs
Qt = 2^5
Cup = 2^3
Gallon = 2^7

Look at all the factors a yard has!

It's time you get rid of system that's designed only for people who must count on their fingers (of French origin if I'm correct). Now THAT is arbitrary.
