We recorded your issue [1] 'Trailing decimal point in seconds field of
dateTime and time' as R-148 [2]. We reviewed and found that this issue is
fixed via another erratum [3]. Particularly,

The *lexical space* of dateTime consists of finite-length sequences of
characters of the form: '-'? yyyy '-' mm '-' dd 'T' hh ':' mm ':' ss ('.'
s+)? (zzzzz)?

This new text brings 'dateTime' and 'time' in-sync with your statement "but
I believe ISO 8601:2000 requires that any fractional part have at least one

Please let us know if this addresses your concern.
