Subject:Missing semantics of comparision macros
Section 7.12.14 Comparision macros (and subsections) are missing Semantics. In particular, something along the lines of: "The usual arithmetic conversions are performed on the operands." This matters if the two operands are of different type, e.g., isless(4.f/3.f,4.L/3.L).
In addition, we might need to add something alone the lines of: "The result of the ... operator is ..." to each of the subsections. We should consider section 6.5.8 Relational operators when we process this defect.
We should review the Constraints of 6.5.* and consider adding something along the lines of: "Each of the operands shall have real floating-type." to 7.12.14 as a constraint. The example in 126.96.36.199 paragraph 4 which uses sizeof will not work when float and _Decimal32 are the same size; nor for double and _Decimal64 being the same size.
