If I understand you correctly, you are asking for two operations that would round an arbitrary inexact real to single or double precision, respectively, with any underflow or overflow that accompanies the reduction in dynamic range, and returns the result as an inexact real of unspecified precision. I agree that it would be good to add those operations to SRFI 77. Did I state their semantics correctly?
