I think this applies to Ada constant arithmetic as well.

Ada constant arithmetic (at compile time) is always infinite
precision (for float as well as for integer).

What do you mean when you say "constant arithmetic"? Do you mean places where there is an explicit 8 * 6 in the source or do you mean any arithmetic that a compiler, using the full power of interprocedural constant propagation can discover?
