Thanks! I see. Maybe things get more obvious if we...

- always classify a pattern as "decimal-digit-pattern" if the primary format
token starts with (or contains?) "#"
- limit "any other format token" to single characters, and raise FODF1310

Without those changes, I fear that users may easily get confused, and will
hardly understand when an error is raised and when not.

The changed rules would then yield errors for the following queries:

- format-integer(1, '#')
- format-integer(1, '#,')
- format-integer(1, '#a')
- format-integer(1, 'x#')
- format-integer(1, '!!!')

I would even suggest to raise an error whenever "an implementation does not
support a numbering sequence represented by the given token" in order to reject
queries like "format-integer(1, '(')".

I would propose to rephrase this sentence into "There is at least one
mandatory-digit-sign.". If we should decide to change the parsing rules as
proposed above, this sentence could stay as is.
