    I looked into new characters for dozenal a few years ago, and there
    certainly are new glyphs that have been used for 10 and 11. My library
    was insufficient, and my interest wasn't enough to chase down sources
    via ILL or the like, but I think I could have made a solid claim that
    there existed characters distinct from any currently encoded
    characters for 10 and 11, provided that you accepted that these wildly
    disparate glyphs could be unified. Without that, it was a mess of
    usages combined to one press and one time period.
