I support moving the WebUI to Redfish but moving the sensor page to 
Redfish, I feel hides the actual problem.
I think we should follow the phosphor-dbus-interfaces.

If we don't follow the interfaces, how when writing code, whether 
phoshor-webui code or bmcweb code, do you know what to expect?

If "Unit" is redundant information, then I feel it should be removed 
from phosphor-dbus-interfaces and stricter requirements on the sensor 
path should be added.
