I am working on a implementation of basic shapes for Gecko and currently it preserves the percentage value as well. I think it is reasonable because percentage can mean something different if there is a different context (in some cases like CSS Transforms and SVG). However, I would say that the implementations do not follow the wording then.

I'm not completely sure what you're asking.  Are you asking if your FF
impl  should omit the % there, or are you asking for the spec to
change to allow keeping the 0% in the serialization?
