overestimate, inaccurate, impractical and confusing for people expecting correctly rounded value.

dec() is designed to show exact conversion,

Why call dec() to get exact conversion, and then complain about it, for doing exact conversion ?
When using dec(), user should expect exact result, not rounded value.

BTW, a correctly rounded value meant round-up value (because CAS drop last 5 bits)
For above case, shortest decimals = 3.14159265358979 = original CAS float
