It is answered in the video, in the (short) discussion of Concept-Based
Overloading, but I'll give the shorter answer here:

Sure, just overload f with different concept requirements:

  template<typename T> requires Floating<T> void f(T value) { ... }
  template<typename T> requires SomethingElse<T> void f(T value) { ... }
