Bioplate coordinates are numbers but it would be better to have character-number pairs

Bioplate row/col coordinates are numbers [0..n,0..m] whereas the physical plate uses character number pairs [A..Z,1..m]. I suppose the underlying database in BASE requires numbers but it is confusing for the users to see the numbers only coordinates. Also, starting the coordinates at 0 makes the life really hard to non computer science savvy users. Would it be possible to show character-number pairs in dialogues? Or at least show the coordinates with 1,1 as starting position rather than 0,0?
I suppose the coordinate system to use in batch importers also starts at 0,0 which may cause trouble for users.
