"Your list of anti-SI-publications does not impress me at all. The journal of Chem. Ed. I do not know, but it is without doubt not authorative in Radiation Protection and opinions expressed there can be easily disregarded!"
Franz, as I previously noted, the SI articles covered "many scientific fields"; it was not exclusively in the area of radiation protection. You can google the journals to find out about them, if you wish. And the _J. Chem. Ed._ articles discussed other SI units, not those related to radiation protection. Furthermore, not all of the articles were "anti-SI."
"The origin of this discussion was invention of new terms!"
The origin of this discussion was a request for the meaning of "radionuclear material." The IAEA Glossary explanation pointed out that some of the early uses of "radionuclear" were in the area of radiomedicine and as a term for 'nuclear and/or radioactive' A googlescholar search at last back to the 1940s, can confirm this.
