Yeah, the simplicity of low values is the only good argument against
multiplying the numbers (other than inertia and the work involved).
However, I am sure players are also mystified and frustrated by the
arbitrariness and mysteriousness of the rounding rules.

But at least you _can_ add them up without having to figure out where they
went due to vanishing mysteriously in the rounding rules. This does lead
to another problem, however:
The solution of using a multiplied value internally and dropping (or
rounding) the fraction when displaying the value means that the numbers
will often not add up. Eg if you have 4 trade, then you get either 1/1/1
or 2/2/2 science/gold/luxuries, which add up to different numbers than 4,
3 shields on the city map ends up being 4 shields due to 10% bonus, or two
cities giving (apparently) 5 science each ends up giving 9 science total.
The oddities will be many, and might result in many erronous bug reports.
