Yes, if we allow arbitrary decimal numbers (0.0000000001) than we need to allow 0 for consistency with the rest of CSS.  There's some wording about handling zero in the width/height media queries that might be relevant here.

For serialization, I think backwards compatibility is worth maintaining. So is keeping numeric precision: we shouldn't turn and exact `2/3` into an imprecise decimal. So, either keep the value as specified (fraction or number) or always insert the redundant `/1` if the specified value was a single number.
