OTOH, IEEE 754 *does* cover floating-point to int conversions (5.4.1, 5.8):  those fall under 'general-computational operations', and as such should signal when given an sNaN (6.2: "Signaling NaNs shall be reserved operands that, under default exception handling, signal the invalid operation exception (see 7.2) for every general-computational and signaling-computational operation except for the conversions described in 5.12. For non-default treatment, see 8.").  It feels to me as though decimal -> binary conversions should follow the same pattern.
