e+- are parsed because they are related to the float format itself.

float format doesn't imply milliseconds, far from it.

[osc~] and [lop~] use hertz as their implicit unit. What would [osc~ 0.1s] 
mean, and how would the parser know which one should be which ?

[rpole~]'s units are in radians (that is, rad/s of cutoff per Hz of 
sampling rate).

[mtof]'s units are midi frequencies... and the number has to come from 
outside of the box. The originating messagebox (or whatever else) has no 
idea that it's going towards [mtof].
