Re: lexical value of decimal type

I think the concern is not whether the particular lexical forms are 
accepted.  It seems to me that the concern is whether the specification is 
sufficiently precise.  I agree that it would benefit from a tighter 
specification of the acceptable lexical forms and of the mappings to the 
value space.  BNF would certainly be a reasonable way to do the former.
