No, actually 4.99999999999 (repeating) is the
half-way point.
5.0 is definitely in the top half.
Decimal has ten digits, 0-4 are the bottom 5 and
5-9 are the top 5. Anything under 500 is the
bottom half, and anything from 5.0 up is the
top half. Nothing debatable about it, just like
0-127 is the bottom half and 128-255 are the
top half in binary. :o)
