Not quite. Digits are disallowed in word-initial position within character
names, and while they ar presently pretty much only used to represent
shapes, there are lots of character names proposed for Plane 1 (Egyptian
Hieroglyphs, Indus, Rongorongo, etc.) where the character name is really
its catalogue number (to be preceded by a letter of some sort; I think I
used H000-H999 for Indus (Harappan), R for Rongorongo, etc).
