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?
