This matches my understanding (modulo signaling). cThis also doesn't
contradict the proposed manual update, right?

Isn't there? This whole series is based on the following assumption:
LT, LE, GT, GE are definitely signaling; LTGT is most likely signaling
as well; the rest are not signaling. This is based on gccint 11.6.3:
Unary and Binary Expressions.
