CLDR supports only SI units, e.g. Kilobyte, Megabyte, Gigabyte, etc only.

However, SI units can't be used in all context, e.g. mobile data usage, and IEC measure unit is a better choice.

We got another request at Google to add these units.

These units are extremely rarely used, so it needs more evidence to justify adding them. (gibibyte:gigabyte is approximately 1:100).
