Section 9.3.2 says:

Leading and trailing zeros are prohibited, subject to the rule that 
there MUST be at least one digit before and after the decimal point.  
The value zero is represented as "0.0".



It should say:

Leading zeros before the first digit and trailing zeros after the 
last digit are prohibited, subject to the rule that there MUST be 
at least one digit before and after the decimal point.  The value 
zero is represented as "0.0".

Notes:

Based on the rule in the orginal text, the value such as "0.5","0.0" is illegal. So I think the intention of the original text is to make sure the leading zeros before the first digit and the trailing zero after the last digit are prohibited.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
The consensus on the NetMod WG was that this text was somewhat confusing, but understandable (and that crafting clear, concise replacement text will be ugly). I'm rejecting this, but future updates may want to consider addressing this anyway (I didn't feel it rose to the HFDU level)
