This issue was originally reported by Henry Zongaro.

The canonical representation of float and double must be refined
because it currently maps several lexical representations into a
single legal value. Specifically, the description of the canonical
representation must address (1) signed exponents, and (2) trailing
zeroes in the mantissa.
