I don't know about the 2/3rds (although it would follow naturally from
1/3rd pints) but I've seen 1/3rds in a couple of places - the Young's
brewery (before it moved) and the Great British Beer festival. I've got
some 1/3rd glasses now, thanks to the last few GBBFs, because I ran out
of space for pints.

I think they've been a legal measure for a while, but after 10 minutes 
of reading through I've lost the will to 
research any further for now...
