It already exists for some types of problems - interval arithmetic.

Most current implementations are relatively slow, because they require switching the processor's rounding control twice per operation (which kills inlining on most processors), but there is no reason that processors built with interval arithmetic in mind could not be designed.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
