You could do this (without the addition of the new attributes) by allowing the value of the rightOperand to include the Currency.
That is, you can define a new constraint action (payAmount) and the value must include the three character currency (from  ISO4217) followed by the decimal amount. 

For example:

       <o:constraint name="ov:payAmount" operator="ov:eq" rightOperand="AUD123.50"/>

Couldn't this be represented by our current date constraint action:

  <o:constraint name="ov:dateTime" operator="ov:lteq" rightOperand="2012-07-31"/>
           
(by definition, the dateTime action is always a ISO8601/XMLSchema date format)
