OK, let me make myself more clear.

I hereby propose the exact same proposal that Levant originally
proposed in this thread and then withdrew, with the caveat that
the scope of the proposal is explicitly orthogonal to any large
scale change to the way we do floating point.

Discussion period: 2 weeks, minus time spent so far in this
thread since Levant's original proposal.
