over time I suppose the likelihood of a typo increases

You could run a poor man's sensitivity test by injecting typos of different types (say, one vs two decimal places) and ages (differing Di)--one at a time--and observe their effect on the calculated A and CAGR.

I'd expect some typos to be bigger deals than others.
