I have a doubt here. Is not \floatpagefraction the minimum ratio of the
space occupied by the floats to blank space in a float page. Hence a
value of 0.5 for \floatpagefraction would mean that a page can have only
floats provided the floats occupy atleast 50% of the page space. If the
value is redefined as 0.95 then, wouldn't the conditions become more
stringent for a float page?
