Since the numbers are part of script "common", not script "Latin", I expect 
*some* changing of scripts mid-label is OK. Not at all sure why IDEOGRAPHIC 
CLOSING MARK (U+3006) or MASU MARK (U+303C) should be OK to use with all 
scripts, but if we're not making up rules for individual letters, they go 
into the same group....
