Tax calculation service integration

What do you guys think about adding support for a tax calculation service? I noticed that, out of the box, the plan is to support Cybersource's Payment gateway, but did you know they also offer a tax calculation service? I could definitely see some ecommerce stores wanting to take advantage of this. I mean, who wants to spend time researching tax changes each year?

I know it might be a little late in the development to be adding something like this, but perhaps it could be added as a contrib module or something.

Anyway, i just thought it would be worth mentioning. You can find more info about Cybersource's tax service here:

I actually integrated that service for CyberSource in Ubercart. : D

Fortunately, with Commerce we've preserved the same pluggable tax calculation method, so the CyberSource module can provide integration with the tax service during the calculation process. It would happen in contrib, so it won't be dependent on the development status of the core modules themselves. You might go file an issue w/ the project for it here:
