There's a difference between "decimal" and "decimal-radix place value 

In the latter, a digits position indicates which power of 10 it 
represents, and therefore, a symbol for zero is required.

In other decimal systems, explicit multipliers (like a symbol for 10 or 
100) are used, and a symbol for zero is not required (except, perhaps, 
to denote a quantity of 0).
