I understood that. I think that the likelyhood of someone removing the
section about rounding in the IEEE standard is very low, and the current
php link is pretty ugly from a REST perspective, and would prevent to see
the possible improved version of the page. Well, no big deal.

I'm afraid that the current implicit rule is more or less "no links", at
least there are very few of them but in the glossary, and when I submitted
docs with them they were removed before committing.

However I do support the idea that these links are useful references and
should be put where appropriate, even if it means that there must be some
updates from time to time.
