(...) For numerical parameters, functions SHOULD use plain decimal
encoding (other encodings are possible as long as they are clearly
defined).

The function specification MUST be such that the encoding of each
parameter value is deterministic. For any parameter value, there shall
be a single sequence of characters that is a valid encoding of that
value.

For numerical parameters, functions SHOULD use plain decimal
encoding (other encodings are possible as long as they are clearly
defined). For example the number one should be encoded as ‘1’, not as
‘001’.
Parsers MAY support other encodings, for example ‘001’ may be accepted as
valid encodings.
