I agree. We could rename it RealFieldElement if you prefer.

Yes, I really need all this stuff. The fact is I use all trigonometric
functions in FieldRotation (and to a lesser extend in FieldVector), plus
a few others like sqrt and so on. Once I have all these functions, it
seemed more consistent to also add the remaining ones (and in fact I
will also need the hyperbolic functions later on).

These methods are the ones that urge me to cut a release.
