That's bug 12220 -- which is currently WONTFIX, so you should probably reopen
it if you want it fixed.

I just looked again and discovered that this actually does affect implementer
requirements, not just author requirements.  ".5" isn't just invalid, parsing
it returns an error.  This seems very surprising.  From the summary, I thought
it was just an authoring requirement.
