           Summary: A valid floating point number was defined as a string,
                    and I'd assume valid ones are a subset of all floating
                    point numbers, so this is the best representation of a
                    string. Applying ToString to a string isn't very
                    interesting. It needs to be clear that it

Comment:
A valid floating point number was defined as a string, and I'd assume valid
ones are a subset of all floating point numbers, so this is the best
representation of a string. Applying ToString to a string isn't very
interesting. It needs to be clear that it's the Number-based ToString, or that
n is always a Number, or something.
