You are right. And it's stated in the documentation on the base type
requirements: "If these values are not provided by the user, the default
values will be used: they are integer values (so pi is bounded by 3 and
4)." The user has to provide its own constants if it doesn't use an
interval based on 'float' or 'double'.
