I don't believe there is an RFC or (current) I-D describing
a floating point syntax and associated matching rules.  As such,
the answer is likely no.

Given the general nature of the syntax and matching rule,
I suggest you contribute a brief specification (in the form
of an I-D to the IETF)...  (publishing an I-D is quite easy).
