re: My belief is that we've decided we don't like this issue as stated. Would
it be appropriate to require that IEEE-FLOATING-POINT on *features* implies
the round-to-nearest algorithm?
"round-to-nearest" isn't sufficient; it should be "IEEE round-to-nearest",
which has implications for "ties".
However, both Moon and I seemed to prefer not trying to specify something
in the standard for the case this issue is addressing.
