At this stage of the game, clarifying and fixing bugs in the spec is still
allowed, but making improvements isn't. I think what you are suggesting falls
into the category of suggesting improvements.

Some of the details of format-integer() are derived directly from xsl:number,
which may explain some of the oddities.

Requiring the primary format token to be a single character would disallow
"Ww",  and also (I believe) some other options that various xsl:number
implementations have traditionally provided.

The design principle for error handling in functions such as format-integer(),
format-date() etc is that if the picture syntax is wrong, it's an error, but if
the picture has implementation-defined semantics, then implementations that
don't recognize the picture must use a fall-back representation. This is
designed to maximize interoperability.
