Show us how much of a problem this is in the real world. Why do you think this is so important to fix? What impact is it going to have? If it weren’t for this thread would you even know the problem existed?

How many bugs have been caused by floating point types violating the programmer's mental model of how numbers work? To me, their both in the same category... both involve specific types that claim to adhere to a certain behavior, and both don't in sometimes subtle ways.
