    To represent Elisp integers that do not fit in 28 bits, we could use
    floating point.

That is a possible approach for many kinds of data, that are used in
only a few places in the C code, but it would not be feasible to do
this for buffer indices.  There are lots many places in the code that
convert buffer position from Lisp integers and C ints and back.
