As of PHP 5.3 all functions (minus a few rare exceptions) throw a warning (and return NULL) on invalid parameters. As this is the same for all functions it isn't explicitly documented.

As the number_format case now came up again one could maybe add a note in the changelog or something like that.

General policy is not to fix these. (And yes, given the commit I just made for doc bug #62471, I realise I'm a giant hypocrite saying that.)
