Implemented but not by using float as default. Instead, the pixel type can be set explicitly with a special field "pixeltype"

http://www.gdal.org/frmt_various.html "This driver does not always do well differentiating between floating point and integer data. The GDAL extension to the .hdr format to differentiate is to add a field named PIXELTYPE with values of either FLOAT, SIGNEDINT or UNSIGNEDINT. In combination with the NBITS field it is possible to described all variations of pixel types."
