In the SVG 1.1 specification section 8.3.1 "General information about
path data" (http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/paths.html#PathDataGeneralInformation)
it says "The only allowable decimal point is a Unicode U+0046 FULL
STOP (\".\") character (also referred to in Unicode as PERIOD, dot and
decimal point) and no other delimiter characters are allowed." As you
probably know, the codepoints are generally expressed as hexadecimal
numbers (especially if using the U+xxxx form) in which case U+0046 is
"F" and period is at U+002E. 2E in 46 in decimal though so I see why
the mistake was probably made.
