I've changed the Canonical Representation for decimal to be more explicit:

"The canonical representation for decimal is defined by
prohibiting certain options from the
decimal-lexical-representation.  Specifically, the preceding optional "+"
sign is prohibited.
Leading zeroes are prohibited.  Trailing
zeroes to the right of the decimal point are also prohibited subject to the
following.  The decimal point is required and there must be at least
one digit to the right and to the left of the decimal point which may be a
zero."

All the best, Ashok
