The question was asked: should automatic casting be done when the type
of the actual parameter differs from the of the formal parameter, which
the compiler knows?

I think the same rules should apply as on assignments.  (The rules applied
there are more or less those proposed by the author; but the implication
is that we have no choice for the rules, which saves work of the committee.)
