One reason why the citation templates can not be implemented in PHP is that
citation style heavily depends on language/project. Russian Wikipedia may have
a very different citation style than English one. Similar the citation style in
Wikiquote may be very different from Wikipedia. It also would be unreasonable
to install several extensions - one for each language/project.

Convert template is less project dependent, but still language dependent. Some
conversions (mi <-> km) would absolutely redundant in other languages. In
addition the desirable output format may also differ. So, any PHP
implementation of the convert template should be flexible enough for different
languages. It should be possible to configure it using MediaWiki pages.
