Alternatives to specifying number of digits for floating types

I'm using a MySQL 8.0 installation on Ubuntu 18.04 accessed within Workbench 6.3.

I've created several tables where I use the nonstandard M and D parameters for a column of type DOUBLE, in this case all columns are of type DOUBLE(22,8).

Any time I query the table I get a warning indicating specifying number of digits is deprecated and will be removed.

(1) Aside from simply turning off warning notifications, is there a way to silence this message from being returned every time I query the tables in question?

(2) What is the general guidance for nonstandard situations where creating tables with columns where, number of decimals represented, for instance, is meaningful?
