Its the first half of the sentence in my copy of RFC 7950.

I propose to reject this errata.

I.e. in the canonical form there MUST always be at least one digit (which could be 0) before the decimal point and then must be at least one digit (which could be 0) after the decimal point.  Otherwise, there must be no leading or trailing 0’s.  So, none of  “.0”, “0.”, “00.0”, “0.00” and “00.00” are in the canonical form, and should be represented as “0.0” instead; similarly none of “.1”, “1.”, “01.0”, “1.00” and “01.00” are in the canonical form and should be represented as “1.0” instead.

We should prohibit trailing zeros in “0.5000000”.
