You can certainly do that if you want to write all the necessary code.
That is, there is lots of code that assumes IEEE format, yes.  But there is
nothing preventing you from writing alternate code for other formats.
However, if you wanted to avoid all that work you could use the pure
software implementation of IEEE FP instead.
