Can precision be zero?

In section 4.2.10 of the April 7, working draft of XML Schema (Datatypes),
it says that the precision facet must be a "positive integer".

In section 5.2.10 of the same document, it says that the precision facet
must be a "nonNegative integer".

I would guess that it should be a positive integer, that is, that you can't
restrain a number to have zero digits. Is that correct?

Any word on when the Candidate Recommendation will be released?
