What would you do in any other language?

There isn't a magic-bullet solution to this problem in any language. If the rules are subject to change, then you either need to recompile, or have some means of configuring the code to use specific rounding rules in specific situations.

The only complaint with .NET / C# is if you're stuck with .NET Framework, where you only options are "to even" or "away from zero"; the options for "to zero", "to negative infinity", and "to positive infinity" were added in .NET Core 3.0.
