It is well known that the southern song style of counting rods, had different forms for the digits 4, 5 and 9 , however currently there is no way to represent such forms, a proposal to add them would only occupy five code points, since number four is identical both vertical and horizontally.


Counting rods - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia<>
Counting rods represent digits by the number of rods, and the perpendicular rod represents five. To avoid confusion, vertical and horizontal forms are alternately used.
