I'll agree that it is best to keep this aspect of the business module

I just realized that there already is a second dialog; when you click Ok
in the post dialog and don't have an account selected, you are informed
so. I think we just need a more informative message there.

There is a New button beside the (empty) post-to-account list. The new
account dialog that it provides already correctly selects the account
type, we could also get it to correctly select the Vendor/Customer currency.
