How about a 'decisions.txt' file included in the distribution? This would include short comments on things like this, to make clear something has been considered. Potentially, also a short solution s.a. yours could be included.

The website is too heavy & 'far away' for this, such a document should accompany the sources themselves imho. Note that it would be 'deep reading', not necessary for any newcomer but might be interesting nonetheless.

I think an appendix to the reference manual might be a good place for it. I usually use the online version of the reference manual, and don't consider the web too "far away".

On a tangent, some languages have a "IEEE annex" which explains how IEEE arithmetic is mapped into the language. It might be useful for Lua to have one. Is there any interest in me writing one?
