/three/ different fields for numerical value anyway. I mean, it's not as
though there exists EVEN A SINGLE CODEPOINT for which two or more of

"numeric value" is 4. It seems to me that one single numeric field would
You may need a second field to establish what "kind" of number this is
(decimal digit, whatever), but then maybe you could figure that out from
the general category anyway.
