Yitz Gale <gale at sefer.org> added the comment:

It's not necessarily true for other than CPython, and it could theoretically not be true someday on some weird platform even for CPython.
 
How about just adding this: "Floating point numbers are usually implemented using double in C." Then at least we're not committing ourselves to anything.
