Yes. I am from back in the day... way back... so 754 1985 is what I have been referring to.
IEEE 854 1987 and the generalized IEEE 754 2008 have the specs for decimal floating point included. Everyone is thinking in the same general direction... its kinda like the Y2K problem based on a stupid limit that because of entrenchment takes forever to resolve moving forward with technological advance.
