"Hopefully, indexes have to be real integer values."

I don't see that they have to be "integer" values, but it gets tricky for current hardware if they aren't limited precision rational numbers. In fact even "integer values" is a deal breaker if they aren't limited precision.

    "Integer value" is a rather abstract concept. It has nothing to do with precision or how we represent it (even on paper).
