I once thought of making a proposal for dozenal digits. The problem
was, while I had several sources, and could with some work find a
number more, for the existence of special characters 10 and 11, I
could find no case where the two different sources used similar
glyphs; to unify them would probably be about the widest disparity in
glyphic variation unified into one character in Unicode, and I doubted
it would fly.
