In specific case of converting a post to a book page... do you really
need to do that? You can add a page or blog post to a book using
node's "outline" tab. It remains of original node type, visible in
content admin, search, tracker etc., but looks as part of a book.

Converting would be nice to have, but you can only convert between the
simple node types like page and story... Most others have additional
information, which has to be filled in or is lost upon conversion.
Imagine converting an image to an event ;)
