This is indirectly spelled out in draft n2764.txt in annex F:
F.3 Operators and functions
[#1] C operators and functions provide IEC 60559 required
and recommended facilities as listed below.
-- The +, -, *, and / operators provide the IEC 60559 add,
subtract, multiply, and divide operations.
IEC 60599 (aka IEEE754) clearly states the behavior for
divide by zero. 6.5.5 does say x/0 is undefined but if
__STDC_IEC_559__ is defined then IEEE behavior is expected.
I haven't checked gassy-c (gcc) for conformance.
