Please avoid "local digit shaping". It means displaying ASCII digit codepoints
with totally different glyphs.

The difference between using local digit shapes on display and using the actual
local digit codepoints in the case at hand may be irrelevant because there is
an additional conversion step, but as far as I understand, local digit shaping
is discouraged (it would address just part of localization needs for number
representations anyway).

So please change "local digit shaping  (such as the use of digits in" to "using
local digits  (e.g. digits in".
