I agree that it would be best to have a formal policy on that; but we could not assign different numbers without a contradication in the way that number_value and number_type are defined, so the relationship is stable.

That is almost precisely what I said. You repeated it perfectly. Thanks.
But actually, there is one small difference between what I said and what you said. I merely observed that no characters have different non-null values for the various number-related properties. But you state (emphasis on *cannot*) that this is guaranteed. Please confirm - is there a hard-coded guarantee that no character will ever be added in the future for which the various number-related properties will have different non-null values? Such a guarantee would be useful, as it would allow me to do more optimisation of stored data.
