That is XSD 1.0.

See also: XSD 1.1 -- W3C Recommendation 5 April 2012 :-)

XSD 1.1:

http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema11-2/#decimal-lexical-representation
==>
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema11-2/#f-decimalCanmap

[[
if d is a integer value, use noDecimalPtCanonicalMap
]]

XML schema 1.1 and 1.0 are different in this area.  There is an 
intentional change to make the canonical form of integer-valued decimals 
and integers the same.

The canonical form of a 1.0 in XSD 1.1 is "1"
