Clearly examples are non-normative, and are there only to help the reader to
understand the normative text. The normative text here is "the smallest possible
number of digits not counting leading or trailing zeroes", and the example
"100000000 is preferred to 100000001" was chosen deliberately to make it clear
that by "leading or trailing zeros" we mean significant as well as
non-significant leading or trailing zeros. Your alternative examples are
correct, but don't make the point that we were trying to make.

But thanks for your concern.
