I would vote for the converse solution.
Whether or not such a rationalization of the system would help
students can only be ultimately decided by experiment. Does
anyone know of any good experiments that relate to this issue.
Of course if we are really willing to reform things
then we need to consider Ben Franklin's mistake that
saddled us with + and - because he did not know which
way the charge was usually transferred.
For starters, think about the frequency dependence: the
relevant quantities are (omega L) and (omega C).
Secondly ... coax has a certain inductance per unit length
and a certain capacitance per unit length.
Thirdly, consider the analogy between an LC circuit and
a mass on a spring. ...
Yes, you need inverse capacitance. But you need capacitance
also. Neither is going to supplant the other, not in a
