As part of discharging RQ-21 (provide regex and/or BNF for all primitive
types), define a BNF and/or regex, lexical mapping, and canonical
mapping for xsd:float and xsd:double.

In discussion at the face to face meeting of August 2005 those
present leaned toward making the lexical and canonical mappings
simply refer to the relevant IEEE specs and not attempt to make
them any tighter or looser than that spec.  

[N.B. I am opening just one item for both float and double
because I assume both will need to be handled in the same way
and we might as well insist on treating them both in the same
decision.  If the WG prefers to track this as two distinct items,
this bug report will need to be split.]
