I've implemented something similar to this and would be very happy to
donate it.

It's basically a converter that sits on top of common-el's expression

You can have a template that looks like this for example

<p>Default conversion of date: ${date}</p>
<p>Short conversion of date: ${date#short}</p>

The expression evaluator evaluates the ${date} to a Date. It then looks
up its configuration for a Date -> String converter. Different
converters between the same class types are differentiated by what comes
after #.
