Mark: Don't shoot the messenger!
I literally quoted the implemented proprietary specification.
However, I do agree that the term "numbers (or bases) with an infinte decimal representation" would be more appropriate in this context.

Also, improving documentation is good, but having a new function with the desired *true* engineering notation would be even better! Admittedly, this was my ultimate objective for filing this enhancement bug.

Thanks for commenting on StackExchange.
