There is a long-standing requirement for the ability to format floating point
numbers in scientific notation. This appeared as a requirement for XSLT 2.0,
but it has never been satisfied.

Note that the Java DecimalFormat class, on which format-number() is based,
accepts pictures such as

0.###E0

to request scientific notation.
