Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2615) 5.16.18 CONVERT,what is "slug"

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2615?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=18303#action_18303 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2615:

In general, I think the CD01 5.16.18 description of CONVERT is a great improvement.  I support the use of specified conversion constants when they are known.  I don't know what is expected to happen when some of them are adjusted by improved experimental measures and use of better reference standards, as happens with efforts to have more precise values for natural "constants."

I do suggest that the Unit Symbol column be done with monospace values.  The capital letter I and the lower-case letter l are difficult to differentiate.  Also, is the exhibited capitalization important (as in "Morgen")?

I also think this is a great exercise for an OpenFormula codefest function.  I wonder how complete these are.  Can I use this plus known conversion factors not here to approximate the speed of light in the standard physics-student units: furlongs per fortnight?  I wonder how much different codefest function implementations will deviate.
