Be careful what you wish for.

The following, from the DAWG/SPARQL-1.0 test suite, break because of this.

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/tests/data-r2/basic/term-6.rq
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/tests/data-r2/basic/term-7.rq
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/tests/data-r2/syntax-sparql1/syntax-lit-08.rq

Breaking the conformance suite is quite serious.

and what about
   .1
?

and what about doubles -- this really does not make sense to me any more:

2.e57
   and
.2e66

Earliest Turtle spec: 2006-12-04 [1] which refers back to SPARQL WD 
2005-11-23 and that followed N3 IIRC.

While I prefer the 18.0 style, it has consequences.
