Hi Ashok,

I still find the new text is confusing.  How about:

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