9.1. Horizontal-in-Vertical Composition: the ‘text-combine-horizontal’ 
property
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes/#digits-ltinteger

"Integers outside the range 1-4 are invalid."

What if you set
date { text-combine-horizontal: digits 1; text-transform: full-width; }

Does it make text-transform redundant?

Isn't digits 1 equivalent to text-combine-horizontal: none? Shouldn't 
the spec say "Integers outside the range 2-4 are invalid."?

No, what that does is set each single digit as full-width and upright. 
(It's a bit redundant because full-width glyphs are by default upright.) 
The full-width transformation is only suppressed when there is more than 
one character in the TCY.

If you remove the full-width text-transform, then digits 1 will 
effectively just put single digit numbers upright. It's not the same as 
'none'.
