Quite! For the uninitiated torque is in units of length _times_ force.
While you may be technically right, it is easier for the layman to think about torque in "how much weight or mass will this shaft lift, given a lever extending from the center of the shaft" - which is why we see torque expressed as kg-cm and lb-ft (though for the latter, it is almost always said, and sometimes written, as "foot pounds" or "ounce inches" or similar). Sometimes a dash is used, sometimes a slash, rarely an "x" for some reason, though.
But I am sure you already knew this.
The thing is - most sites (not all) selling motors or other actuators don't list the information in the manner you prefer and indicate. Many of those sites aren't selling to scientists or even engineers, but rather mechanics, hobbyists, and other "laypeople" - that is, those generally without the formal training in such matters.
What I would personally like to see, is a web page or something similar that could relate and explain your method in a clear and concise manner, along with graphical examples - while comparing and contrasting that methodology to the more common "layperson" method of understanding torque. You yourself have explained several times how you view torque and how it works (and I commend you for that!). I haven't seen, though (maybe I missed it?) any explanation from you how that method compares (and translates to) the colloquial layperson method.
