Is there a question here? If you are trying to provide Apple feedback you can do that at: http://www.apple.com/feedback/.

I've not used numbers, but a work around might be to include the units in the cell's title and use unitless numbers in the cells. As a scientist/engineer I've always had to do this as Excel does not use kg, lbs, BTU, newtons, feet, etc.

Worked for me.

In B2 $1.00

In C2 $2.00

In D2 =B2/C2, which returns $0.50

Format D2 as Number, D2 returns 0.50

Now I can reference D2 as a number with functions, including DURATION, however I think the function you are looking for in Numbers is BONDDURATION (equivalent to DURATION in Excel).

As for the discussion. I don't have strong feelings, but I think I tend to agree with you that $/$ should return a scalar. Maybe. Working around either seems to be simple enough, however.
