AFAIK, calculated fields main task is inform the user. In other way, if 
we don't need to inform the webapp user about the "subtotal", "taxes 
amount in a currency" and so on, then we don't need this feature. This 
is why IMHO, let's talk first about the functionality before going into 
implementation details. :-)
