That was my point, I suppose.  I am not a native speaker of English, and in my ears this sounds like a contradiction, which would be easy to repair by adding some transitional words, such as "except that".

(And very formally, the draft doesn't say /which/ inexact number it may return, once it no longer follows the equations..)
