Dynamic currency formatting

Automatic formatting of numbers is nice when the user steps through different levels of detail and the number appears with a reasonable number of significant digits. Any attempt to include an extraordinarily helpful "$" to indicate that the axis refers to a measure of money is met by the constraint that the publisher has to pick the scale (cents, dollars, thousands (K), millions (M), billions (B)) but that scale is frozen irrespective of the user's chosen level of detail. Why? Please let us add a currency character to the existing "Automatic" number formatting.
