It is not possible to match AP Invoice to Purchase Order or Receipt if documents are in different currencies

This is very common business case to have and PO, Receipt and Invoice for goods in currency A and to have additional invoices for freight, custom duties,... (acquisition cost invoices) in currency B.
All those invoices should be matched to receipt and should constitute Inventory Cost Value (total acquisition cost).

Functionality is not available as standard one in AP and also is not available in other products like Landed Cost Management.
This is must have for all European countries and I think even for States and resto of the world.
For example business case in US where goods are ordered, received and invoiced as a import from China in yuans (CNY) and additional invoices are received from local supplier for freight-transport from port to warehouse.

If an organization does a lot of trade with a lot of different foreign suppliers, te trade is quite often invoiced against another currency code than the currency code on the purchase order.
At this moment invoices cannot be matched because of this issue.
The buyer has to cancel the original purchase order and create a new one (which will have another number, which is unknown at the supplier and is confusing when the items on the PO are only partially supplied and contact with the supplier is needed to clarify the delivery).
