Note that the floating-point peculiarities are precisely meant to efficiently deal with computationally-expensive calculations, what is certainly the case with exponentiation algorithms. Additionally, most of these algorithms are also relying on further assumptions and simplifications, at least for certain scenarios.
In summary, the goal of most of the existing (floating-point-based) exponentiation implementations is delivering reasonably accurate results as quickly as possible. On the other hand, the approach described here is mostly focused on delivering as accurate as possible results reasonably quickly.
