Re: XSLT 2.0 Decimal number silliness
I tend to agree with you that I would much rather have an interoperable spec on this. However, some of the XQuery vendors push hard against this, especially those who are trying to translate XPath predicates into SQL predicates.
Explain a little more, if you can. Certainly they're not opposed to interoperability in principle. And, presumably, the minimal legal implementation of 18 digits total isn't good enough for their purposes. What is it the XQuery folks need that a fixed length or specified decimal length wouldn't solve? It would be really nice to find a clean solution that meets everyones needs.
