This simply looks like a bug, introduced somehow in the second edition 
of SVG 1.1.
And it clearly notes: 'The normative definition of these keywords is 
found in User preferences for colors ([CSS2], section 18.2).'
Therefore the bug has no normative consequences.

I think, in the first edition, such a problem does not occur:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-SVG11-20030114/types.html#DataTypeColor

For example SVG tiny 1.2 explictly notes 
'an arbitrary number of decimal places may be supplied'.
