Yes, you seem to have a good grasp of the issues.
Good work.

Go ahead and add some details from cpp_bin_float
if you like. You can mention that this is a potential
solution method.

Other than that, I believe you have found
the right level of detail, with a few more suggestions
from my side below.

I suggest you move the FFT algorithms to an optional
part, add a bit more time for the elementary transcendental
functions, and add some time for testing the various
milestones in the project.

After that, you should start submitting your proposal.
As far as I know, you can modify your proposal up
to May 03.

Keep up the good work.

Sincerely, Chris.
