Good points David. In fact Australia has already taken 1 cent and 2 cent coins out of circulation, (although banks still support $0.01, all cash amounts are rounded to the nearest $0.05) We also have the same pricing petrol - in thousandths of a dollar - but this is rounded to the nearest $0.05 or $0.01 (cash or electronic payment) That may be difficult information to find right away - and outside of my current requiremnets - but will also be valuable info.
