Ian Stewart, "The Missing Link...", New Scientist p 30, 9 Nov 2002 writes
accessibly about Quaternions & Octonions:

"The octonions started out as mathmetical curiosities, and were almost entirely
ignored for 150 years, but their time has now come"

so that I think these can be regarded as mainstream and entirely suitable for
C++ Standard Library.
