ORA-FO-176-B: no statement about truncation or rounding

SECTION 6.2: functions and operators on numerics

There is no statement about how to deal with truncation or 
rounding.  For xs:float or xs:double, you can say that you follow
the IEEE rules.  For integers, this is only an issue for 
op:numeric-divide (you have a statement that there is no rounding 
in op:numeric-integer-divide).  The main issue is xs:decimal.
At the very least, this should be implementation-defined.
