indeed, in ELKS it is defined as NUMERIC:

infix "^" (other: NUMERIC): NUMERIC

-- Current object to the power other


other_exists: other /= Void;
good_exponent: exponentiable (other)


result_exists: Result /= Void

Currently infix "^", aka exponential with integer exponent belong to FLOAT.

Shouldn't it belong to NUMERIC instead?
