    I don't think you can force the user to choose the right option, only check the order to ensure that he has done so (the 'zone' will be shown in admin).

    You can give the shipping calulation one value - either the total number of products or the total of their units values. It doesn't have both.

    But maybe the simplification has gone too far. Will it cope with a mix of objects in the order? Maybe you could manage without the 'US mail' zone leaving two geographical options and give different units values to the two product types.

    What will you do with a mix - send everything by UPS? And what volumes of each type do you expect to see?
