As mentioned, with complex numbers the radians make more sense and of course cmath.sind(x) + 1j * cmath.sind(x) != cmath.exp(1j * x).
However, adding degrees version for cmath (import cmath) is still useful, cmath.rectd, cmath.phased, cmath.polard etc.

Would sind and cosd make Euler's formula work correctly?
sind(x) + i * sind(x) == math.e ** (i * x)
I suspect that adding these functions is kind of like those cartoons where the boat is springing leaks and the character tried to plug them with their fingers. Floating point is a leaky abstraction.
Perhaps you'd prefer an enhancement to the fractions module that provides real (not float) math?
