Because they're not numerals, they're words/parts of words. East Asian writing systems don't traditionally distinguish the numeral "1" from the number-word "one." Yes, you *can* use them as straight decimal digits, but that's an extended use, and it's more akin to "two zero one zero" than "2010."

There isn't an official zero. U+3007 and U+96F6 are the two that are generally used. Which you want to use is somewhat context-dependent; if possible, the choice should be left to the user.
