I don't think so.

I had a look at
and in French, MiB is Mio. For B they suggest o, mentionning also that there is 
a risk of confusion with the number 0. So I think I would stay with "octets" for 
B, but switch the other ones.

Yes, in English and in other languages which do not have a language-specific 
abbreviation for those.

We could ask translators to check if their translations respect the new units 
defined in 1998

but for PMA 2.9.0, ok? :)
