Don't see the issue, TBH.

Most people know that words ending in "illion", for numbers, means "really big", and enough people understand "quint" to figure out its bigger than "trillion" and "quadrillion".

Frankly 10^18 would be just as unfathomable for the many people you refer to. All it saves is a bit of typing.
