Looks good, just one question:

Is Decimal Floating Types common term?  I would have expected Decimal 
Floating Point Types or similar.

http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg14/www/docs/n1108.htm and indicate
http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2006/n1977.html that
this is, in fact, okay.  Perhaps a short comment on the relation of
floating point types and decimal floating types would help avoid confusion
for naive readers like me?
