And I also understand that in real petroglyphs, 1 and 2 (for instance) usually look more like ∪•∪ and •∪• than like the simplified • and •• that I'd suggest for the basic glyphs. But I can say confidently that there are audiences who would use these glyphs, certainly more than a lot of what's in Unicode.
