Mine preference would be either
a) always "flatten" to 0027 or
c) use exactly what was used in the source standard, and, when what the
   source standard uses is arguably incorrect, notify that standard's
   maintainer so the error can be corrected.  With luck, and time, this
   would achieve the same result as "b", but with less confusion.
