separate product REAL weight and dimensions, and SHIPPING weight and dimensions: a) make sense? b) how to implement?

separate product REAL weight and dimensions, and SHIPPING weight and dimensions: a) make sense? b) how to implement?

My client would like REAL weight and size shown for the customer's interest, AND SHIPPING weight and size (not necessary to show) so that he doesn't under bill for items that will have a significant weight and size added by packaging —for example, fragile items might require an increased weight and size in the actual box and padding.

Is this totally wrongheaded in approach or is there a more elegant solution than two sets of weight and size columns in the database?

If it's a legit consideration for UPS shipping, where and how would I alter the normal requests for this information.
