And: While typeset math layout is also locale-dependent, these
internationalization considerations are more of a concern for plain
text. And: Number-internal formatting (which this is) is the least of
all concerns for math layout. In line with this: I don't see much
thousands separators in numbers appearing in real typeset math.

Interesting; I guess this is tolerable because the only case of
ambiguity between the three is between {the inner product between
3-dimensional vectors} and {the cross product}.
