I propose upgrading bit-casting labels to match the new API design
guidelines. Here's what we have today:
"Bit pattern" has the needless word "pattern" while not reading well due to
the lack of a verb or preposition. Simply "bits" will not be confused with
something else in this context. "Truncating" is the present participle
which is confusing.

Suggestions for improved names welcomed.
