FWIW, the occasions where this mattered all involved a mix of multiplications and divisions that mostly cancel out.   

The quadratic formula example is typical:   product([4.0, a, c, 1.0/b, 1.0/b].

Or a floating point implementation of comb(): product([1000, 999, 998, 997, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 1/1])

Or terms in series expansions where both the numerator and denominator have many factors.
