[Image-SIG] Undocumented floating-point TIF support in PIL?

The PIL documentation claims that TIFF files are supported for "1",
"L", "RGB", or "CMYK" data.
I was examining the Tiff plug-in and did not find anything that
suggested "F" was unsupported so I tried writing and reading a simple
floating-point TIFF. It worked.
Is this just a missing entry in the docs or does anyone know of
potential gotchas should I start using this new found capability?
