Rendering Raised FULL STOP between Digits

Are there any widely available fonts that in non-specialist tools will
render the decimal point U+002E FULL STOP significantly above the
baseline when it is used as a decimal point? I count word processors
as non-specialist, and am not interested in special word processor
commands to make arbitrary adjustments to the positions of characters.

In a real example of such a font, how would one adjust the position so
that U+002E is on the baseline in section numbers but raised in genuine
decimal numbers? (This is not an idiosyncratic style.) Theoretically,
one might have to resort to labelling section numbers as being in
American English, or even, since OpenType appears not to support
different variants of English, as French!

Partial answers will be useful.
