You won't be able to use such a syntax to express durations of time, but what
you COULD do is use the format you'd like and then write a processing script
to convert those HH:MM entries into seconds.

Price histories work differently from associating a conversion value with a
posting. I don't think the "P" directive will ever fully do what you'd wish
