Hi Paul,

Thanx again for the comments.
I corrected the typos. Other replies inlide below.

The reason is that BLD does not require them. I remember that we decided 
on a short list to be required early on, on a provisional basis and that 
floats were left out of it for some reason; and we never really reviewed 
that list.

I do not remember for boolean, but I guess the reason why they are not 
on the list is the same: we excluded it from the first list because it 
was under discussion and we did not want that to stop us from publish a 
public draft, and we never came back to that discussion...

Do you want to raise that issue (whether floats should be required in BLD)?

We might change the tag name to a more intuitive one (see agenda for 
tomorrow [1]).
