Why is Float used in Elemental rather than Double?

Going through the currently Elemental library shows Float data type being used rather than Double.

Excuse the ignorance here, but isn't it the case the Javascript number is represented by Java Double type?

We are looking to change this, but not quite sure the reason behind the decision to use Float in the first place, and what adverse effect may be caused by attempt to change it to Double.

Will it be changed in Elemental 2.0?

thanks a tonne!
