I don't think the mere existence of a raised dot used as a decimal point
should really force us to regard the context as "math mode", to use TeX
lingo. Decimal fraction notation is everywhere. In any case, I'm
wondering whether half-M or half-x height is the prescriptive default
(fwiw) or whether there is free variation or underspecification.
