A possibility here would be to split the dimensions for the seven base
SI units from the rest.
The dimensions for the seven base SI units are length, mass, time,
electric current, thermodynamic temperature, mass, and luminous
intensity. (m, kg, s, A, K, mol, cd).
(see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SI_base_unit and

Is it possible to add the SI derived unit radian (symbol:rad,
dimension:angle) and the non SI unit degree (symbol: U+00B0, 1 degree=
2pi/360 rad) ?
