    Note that the proposal would get consideration if it dropped the requirement
    on figure-space, and justified the need to treat and collate hex digits as
    numeric characters.

    In fact, the proposal suggests (prefers) exactly the opposite: collating hex
    digits with letters instead of just after digit 9. This is a non-sense, and
    this proposal is not for you if you want to implement natural sort...
