Subject: Re: [office-formula] EUROCONVERT


EUROCONVERT currently has

| Applications may support other currency conversion values.  Note,
| however, that currency conversion values fluctuate, so applications that
| support this will need to be able to update currency conversion values.
| When and how this occurs is outside the scope of this specification.

I think we should remove that paragraph. EUROCONVERT has a clearly
defined purpose and should not be mixed with fluctuating currencies.

| Note that this function is not required to support prefixes (such as
| G for giga); portable applications must not use prefixes with this
| function.

I think this is superfluous and we don't have to mention. In addition
the term "portable applications must not" may leave the impression that
non-portable apps might get away with it..



Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
of spreadsheets.  --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
