After further discussion, the editors have converged on the 
following wording (similar to B, but with 'provide' instead
of 'make'):

   This datatype is introduced to provide a variant of decimal that
   corresponds more closely to the floating-point decimal datatypes
   described by [an]^the^ expected forthcoming revision of IEEE/ANSI 754.
   "Precision" of values is retained, and the special 
   values (two zeros, infinities, and not-a-number) are added 
   [to that end].
