XML Schema defines [1],[2] xsd:integer as derived from xsd:decimal.  The
suggestion in the SWBP note applies to primitive types, not all built-in

In contrast, xsd:float and xsd:double are not derived from xsd:decimal.

So, the set of possible interactions you're worrying about should be
reduced to

xsd:float vs xsd:double vs xsd:decimal
