The ISO version of the standard is ISO/IEC/IEEE 60559:2011, which C11 Annex F refers to as IEC 60559 (although C still refers to it as IEC 559 in the __STDC_IEC_559__ macro).

This member should probably be named "is_ieee754". Or at least the standard should explain that IEC-559 no longer exists, and that it's been superseded by IEEE-754.
