potential erratum: totalDigits/fractionDigits

Hi. In datatype spec, 4.3.11, there is an example about totalDigits. It
says the example is for numbers less than 1,000,000 with 2 fraction digits.

  <restriction base='decimal'>
    <totalDigits value='8'/>
    <fractionDigits value='2' fixed='true'/>

But "fixed" means that "factionDigits" can't be assigned to other value in
derived types, not that the value has to have 2 fraction digits. So
10,000,000 is allowed by the above type.

I don't think schema datatype has the ability to construct a type
satisfying the above conditions just using totalDigits and fractionDigits.

What do you think? Is it an erratum?
