I think you lost all sense of proportion here.  The decimal module is obliged to follow the decimal spec (that is its reason for existence).

The decimal module docs are already create a heavy mental load and their usability would not be improved shifting focus to corner case inconsistencies between types that haven't proven to be an issue in practice.  If you were to go write a blog post about 0**0 versus Decimal(0)**0, I think you would find that no one cares.
