Subject: Proposal: number:denominator-value

This proposal extends 14.7.1 Number Style, sub-heading "Fraction".

I'm told that many spreadsheet programs (Excel, Gnumeric and KSpread)
support a number-style for fractions where the denominator has a fixed value.
Currently if you have numbers like 0.5 and 0.6, the fraction style might choose
1/2 and 3/5, which makes it difficult to compare those numbers.
The user can specify "those should be fractions with 10 as denominator",
so that the above numbers are displayed as 5/10 and 6/10.

The proposal is to add the attribute number:denominator-value which is an integer value.
