It's my understanding that there is a proposal to that effect for 1.1.
It cannot be done for 1.0 since 1.0's assummptions about equality and
identity are expected to be different from those of 1.1.

The original comment here is about 1.0.  Since even in 1.0 neither float
nor double are totally ordered, making NaN incomparable with itself will
not change things.
