Well gee whiz. But we dont spell it that way, because of the context - spelling it as Gb would be inaccurate. Where're you going with this?

Actually, there is, more or less - irrational time signatures, where the denominator is something other than a power of two. They can always be expressed as a tempo modulation, however.
