The reference to the language spec was really just a way to avoid spelling out all the details (again) about the precise form of a floating-point string;  apart from the accepted set of digits, the forms are exactly the same (optional sign, numeric part, optional exponent, ...);  spelling it all out twice gets a bit tiresome.

Would it be acceptable to add a note to the current documentation describing the alternative digits that are accepted?
