Yes, you can certainly implement it this way. Furthermore, the
parsing logic can try to figure out the precision automatically
based, for example, on the number of characters after '.' in the

Then you can use type customization to implement the fractionDigits
behavior without having it in the schema. The custom/double example
in 3.2.0 shows how to do something similar for the build-in double
type though you would probably want to customize a user-defined
type (e.g., temperature) which is even easier.
