Totally agree with the others. I actually like Metric chisels for mortises for the same reason OleGrump mentions. You can get a metric size that is just slightly undersized for an imperial measurement and it makes it a lot easier to work and adjust.

Marc Spagnuolo, the Wood Whisperer, did a post a while back where he talks about that, as well, and says it better than I ever could.
