This is exactly what I've planned to do in a agent-based system;
integration of heterogeneous agents which use various units of
measurement can be achieved by adding one or more translator agents. It
can be achieved locally by adding conversion rules of course, but that
requires changes to be made to every agent, rather than just one.
