The WG presented to QT on 27 June its decision/proposal to (1) mark
precisionDecimal as a "topic at risk" when the CR is released, (2) not to
include precisionDecimal if IEEE has not finalized its 754 revision, and (3)
not to include precisionDecimal if in the WG's opinion there was inadequate
implementation support for IEEE 754.  QT [reluctantly?] accepted this decision.

Subsequent discussion under this bug should be on the proposed alternative: 
that there should be vendor- or user-available mechanisms to define new
primitives--primitive definition should not be confined to the Datatypes
specification itself.
