I doubt that such a currency conversion would be related to "automated
error checking". The idea of the extended error-checking is that mixing
currencies (or other unrelated/non-convertible units) of different types
is not allowed, not automatic conversion.
Note also that Calc has a CONVERT() function (unfortunately named
identical but different to the Excel CONVERT() function, which currently
is available as CONVERT_ADD()) that obtains it's conversion factors from
Your idea seems more suitable for an independent extension that obtains
values from somewhere in the net and saves them to the conversion
configuration or provides some currency conversion Add-In function(s),
instead of wiring it into the core code.
