Why s this task and not a feature request?

+++ b/core/modules/system/lib/Drupal/system/Tests/TypedData/TypedDataTest.php
@@ -570,12 +570,12 @@ public function testTypedDataValidation() {
-      'type' => 'integer_field',

-    $field_item = $this->typedData->create($definition, array('value' => 10));

Why are we replacing these lines? Should we not be adding new test?

I classed it as a task because its an oversight that its missing, and I filed it in response to a direct question about why didn't we have one from someone porting a module to D8.
I changed the tests because they are verifying validation works for typed data, only integer_field is tested yet there are numerous others. I figured so long as we keep testing validation (which we are) but we use an alternate type (float) then we get the best of both worlds - we continue testing validation, but we also get float field testing. There are other remaining validation tests that test integer field
