What do you mean by the "floating point-people"?  Are you looking for the
IEEE 754 implementers?

I do deal with testing of floating point values very frequently, and you've
asked for "some input as regards how such an assertion should work",
which was exactly what was provided hoping it'd be useful as a data
point.  I won't bother next time.
