ton vs metric ton

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ton#Units_of_mass.2Fweight for a little chart

Right now we have units "ton" and "metric ton".

I wonder if we should at least say "ton 2,000 lb (907.1847 kg)" and "metric ton/tonne 1,000 kg (2,204.623 lb)" - that would make them unambiguous.

The Estonian vetters submitted the same content for both Ton and Metric Ton. According to http://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonn the "Lühike tonn" is 907 kg (thus "ton" in en-US usage?) and the Tonn is what en-US refers to as the "metric ton".

Propose: en_ZZ has "US ton", "UK stone", etc for the non metrics, and the translation hints always show an equivalent.
