To summarize, the grounds weren't improper; you just didn't agree with
them. Procedurely speaking, the rejection was entirely well founded.
Referring to the mathematical letters won't help you a whole lot; as
an addition to Unicode, they're one of the more controversial, and I
for one don't agree with them. (I do however understand that that is
water under the bridge, and that an argument would be futile.)
Your hex letters don't have a large support among the people who would
use them; note that the mathematical letters had the support of the
American Mathematical Society. If the ACM were to support these
characters, the case might be different.
But instead those who need hexidecimal digits would instead use the
ASCII versions, making your proposed characters confusing and most
people would just discourage their use. Unicode does not need more
characters that people aren't supposed to use.
