[#] Well, i mean, you can certainly write a floating-point number in another radix quite easily. It might be cute to include it for completeness (and consistency with integers) though i bet no one would really consider it much more than a neat E curiosity. But it would neatly take care of the case where one happens to have a floating-point value with no fractional part, as in Bill's example.
