Something to keep in mind is the Units ML work, started by NIST (http://unitsml.nist.gov/) and recently continued in a new OASIS TC (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=unitsml). If we want to add units support to spreadsheets in the future, then this project might help with some basic representational issues.

Well, the fact that Sun calls FORTRESS a next generation programming language should be considered as a strong sign of its utility. That said, I (as a researcher) really miss this automatic unit conversions. In my primary work I miss this feature, too (the money extension - both static and dynamic). I have some further ideas about currency conversions and if someone is interested I would be happy to share them.
Yes and no. Sun appears to have a vested interest in FORTRESS. In any case, the page to which you refer is mostly "promotional". Are there any other implementations of the fortress language or is sun co-developing the reference implementation and the specification. Ten years from now, fortress may be the java of hpc, but now...probably a little early to say.
This may be a distraction. Units of measure can be added without adopting conventions from any particular programming language.
