I disagree. There is no reason to make a "viable alternative", when there is
logic to the established standard. 

1. spaces separate words

2. subscripted and superscripted labels apply to the entity *immediately*
preceeding or postceeding them.

3. variables are italicized; labels are not

Thus

WRONG: 35.4mL, 35.4 /mL/

CORRECT: 35.4 mL

WRONG: HCl(aq), HCl(/aq/)

CORRECT: HCl(aq)

and a myriad of others that are still used incorrectly.
