Isn't the major point in this issue really that the positions are in "to small"

In most cases you will not see if two objects differ by 1/100 mm, maybe not even
by 1/10. Wouldn't a better solution be that when choosing unit in the
preferences you also chose the "smallest fraction"?

For users using mm the smallest default fraction might be .5 mm. For users
using points it might be 1 pt, for users using inches it might be .01".
I'm certain that users using inches do NOT want automatic rounding to integers...

Of course this should only refer to mouse movement and nudging, when entering
true numbers you should be able to enter "100/3 mm" and get 33.33 mm.
