What?  We don't pass float as a binary to clients.
Sure we do, if the client is sending or receiving data in binary format.

But in those cases, we assume the client and server have the same

It is correct assumption, but I did not find it in documentation and if you look on floating data type description there is mention about non IEEE 754 platform, but nothing about this assumption.

I think IEEE 754 compliance must be required on all platforms.
