I know the standard requires 32 bit signed integer range, but does not restrict vendors from supplying larger ranges. However extending the range of "integer" may break existing code. Is there any consideration to a new data type which would be larger integers? Then the usages would be independent and not subject to breaking existing code.
I think the same thing applies to the REAL type. It's just that many languages allow simple indication of the size of integer and real you wish to work with. Why is this so hard to figure out in HDL?
