Since 0000 is unambiguous, I propose leaving this alone unless some actual harm can be shown.  The leading zeros for floats have proven to be harmless, 00.0 is valid.  I see no reason to churn the code, go through deprecation effort, burden the docs with a X-stopped-being-valid-in-version-Y.   

Unless Georg states that this was a flat-out mistake, I vote -1 based on there being insufficient motivation to undo an already released implementation decision.
