I made this mistake myself. The description is very clear:
"Coordinates can only contain digits, or one of the following symbols (including space after comma) -, . "
So, don't blame the tests, even if the idea behind your critic is reasonable. In practice it would be usefull to be more failure-tolerant and deliver corrected coordinates, but this wasn't the task.
Hidden test won't work :)
