This is a little too simplistic: these characters have specific numeric
properties and behaviors separate from those of A and B. The
hexadecimal-ness of A through F is not encoded in Unicode, but these
characters are commonly used as hex digits *and* in Latin-based scripts.
However, these extra two characters are clearly not interchangeable with A
and B, so I don't believe that using these is a complete solution.

Perhaps a better solution is to use the Roman numerals X and XI (or x and
xi) encoded in the number forms range (2150-218F).
