Seems generally fine to me; i'm not the best person to comment, though, 
since it's highly unlikely i'll use them.

I did notice one thing that is sort of wrong, though:

:Objection: *WorkWeek* is an obscure and uncommon time unit.

:Defense: That's true but it is a highly suitable unit of granularity
     for estimation/targeting purposes, and it is very compact.  The
     `ISO 8601`_ is widely understood but allows you to only specify
     either a specific day (restrictive) or month (broad).

Actually, ISO 8601 includes a week notation. Have a read of this:

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-time.html

Which explains that you can write things like 2005-W20 to mean the 20th 
week of 2005, and ISO won't send you to hell for it.
