I think there was a lost cause to try to standardise on something like
Ki for 1024, but it is never going to work given that no marketing
person seems to know the difference between K and k, M and M, or B and
b, and, nowadays, a lot of programmers don't seem to either.

KB as 1024 * 8 bits has been industry standard for more than 30 years.

I would vote against Ki as it will simply cause confusion.
