It has been pointed out to me that the following is in the 12B-2 changes file :

    OTP-7084  The functions io_lib:write/1,2 and io_lib:print/1,4 have been
	      changed when it comes to writing floating point numbers. This
	      change affects the control sequences p, P, w, and W of the
	      io_lib module. (Thanks to Bob Ippolito for code
	      contribution.)

So perhaps these functions are effectively in the core?
