Not specifically, it just happens that the density of water is 1,000g/L. 
It's not a true percentage, it's really saying 60g peroxide / 1 liter 
solution. That's why I was saying it's not intuitive.

Even if your solvent was mercury, 60g of peroxide per liter would still 
be referred to as a 6% solution even though by weight it would be 
something like a 0.4% solution.
