Personally, I think that the value 1% is easier to comprehend than the
value 1.5625% (to which a division by 64 is equivalent), so in this
case I prefer the human to the computer.
Tell this to any American who would prefer 1/32th of an inch to a
millimetre before you finish your sentence. You defending this more
than just a heuristic value, there is a European pride behind it :)

For the record, I prefer 1/64.  :)     (Coincidentally I am also American)
