[Hat] Parsing issue with 1e12

Hi Hat and Yhc people (and I guess nhc people as well),
Both GHC and Hugs parse 1e12 as a number, but Hat and Yhc don't.
For example, test = print 1e12 gives:
yhc: -- during when renaming
Error: Identifier e12 used at 7:15-7:17 is not defined.
I have also been told that Hat leads to an error.
1) Is this an error, what does the Haskell spec say?
2) Should the parser be fixed in all the right places? (does this
impact Colin's hpc as well?)
