Stop for a second and consider why you can tell this as you do ...

... maybe because we _do_ have these standards?

A standard of measurement is _not_ having the same AC frequency
everywhere. It is having the same value for 1 Hz everywhere, so you can
specify a device for 50 or 60 Hz.

You're just using the standards you claim don't exist.
