Bridge/Camera Raw: Correct SI units should be used

Was surprised to notice recently that Photoshop incorrectly shows color temperature in "degrees Kelvin" - there are no degrees (word or symbol) in Kelvin (it being an absolute unit of temperature). The unit was (re)defined in 1968 as just a Kelvin (http://www.bipm.org/en/si/base_units/...). This may seem picky, but technicalities should be correct, surely.

Can you provide a screen shot where you're seeing this in the UI?

It appears in the Camera Raw section of the Metadata tab in Bridge:

Thanks. Let me see if this is something we can touch up.

If we're just talking about Bridge: I can fix that in about, oh, 2 minutes ago.

(though it might help if Jeff sent me a bug report, so QE doesn't scream when they see the change)

I wasn't sure if Camera Raw was writing that string or Bridge. I sent to Eric, but I'll log a bug and let you and him knife fight for it.

I was just a string in Bridge. ACR doesn't show units, and File Info in Photoshop doesn't show units (and makes it difficult to find the ACR white point temperature).
