What's a problem is that in Excel even though it also uses the 
leading ' to format text as numbers, if you change the format of 
a cell the conversions happen without any problems.

That´s not true. I just tried in Excel. The leading ' stays, no
matter what format you would apply.

to me it makes sense that the cell format should be the
controlling factor for what type of data is in a given cell.

Absolutely no! Format must never have an impact on values or data
types. That´s a matter of logics.
