      Description

      In CALCITE-2302, we introduce implicit type coercion for Calcite builtin conversion behaviors, we also expand the conversion matrix to support more type conversion compared to the old matrix [1], that means, we implement a conversion matrix of our Calcite style.

      As a library of other sql engines, i think we should make the conversion matrix pluggable, so that each engine can customize if the conversion is valid from a type to another.

      We have made the TypeCoercion pluggable/customizable, so if this matrix is also pluggable, then, the whole conversion behavior can be customized.

      That would give the type conversion of Calcite a pretty good flexibility.
