Granted, there probably isn't any perceptible difference between 41.00% and 41.18%, but from an end-user perspective 41.00 should be 41.00, not 41.18.  A user should get the values they specified.

The other thing to realize from what I was saying was that, if a color 
value, even CMYK, can only have 256 possibilities, then if we divide 
100/255, then the smallest difference there can be from one setting to 
another is about 0.4% (which is why multiples of 20.0% are possible), so 
the problem may be in suggesting that tenths of percentages are 
possible. If the SLA file is where a percentage might be saved, the 
format has no allowance for saving 30.0%, only what is closest to that.
