Per http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#decimal

"All ·minimally conforming· processors ·must· support decimal numbers 
with a minimum of 18 decimal digits (i.e., with a ·totalDigits· of 18). 
However, ·minimally conforming· processors ·may· set an 
application-defined limit on the maximum number of decimal digits they 
are prepared to support, in which case that application-defined maximum 
number ·must· be clearly documented."

Many of the NIST tests have decimal, integer, long, int, 
nonPostitiveInteger, etc values exceeding this limit, so minimally 
conforming processors can legally error out.  Is that what you meant?
