Moreover, isn't your proposition actually similar to the current state?
Technically, there are no limitations in the library to prevent you from
defining bounded<float> ("floating point is allowed"). But the advice in the
documentation ("don't use built-in floating point types with this library (until
you really know what you're doing)") can be interpreted as "the results may
sometimes be surprising".
