Inconsistency in Misc`Units`


I think the example speaks for itself:

In[1]:=
<< Miscellaneous`Units`;

In[2]:=
?Gauss

"Gauss is the derived CGS unit of magnetic flux density."

In[3]:=
CGS[Gauss]

Out[3]=
Tesla
-----
10000

Why am I getting the SI unit of flux density instead of the CGS unit?

Disclaimer: I know that as a serious scientist, I shouldn't touch CGS
with a 10 foot, er, 304.8 centimeter, pole, but I am working with some
legacy models.
