text-combine-horizontal

The digits <integer>? description says:
"Within the element, each maximal sequence of consecutive ASCII digits 
(U+0030–U+0039) ..."

But later we read:
"any full-width characters must first be converted to their 
non-full-width equivalents by reversing the algorithm defined for 
‘text-transform: full-width’ in [CSS3TEXT]"

Which seems to imply that full-width characters are also affected by the 
digits value. If so, the range of codepoints should be extended.

And if so, what about the range of half-width digits? Are they also 
included? If so, they should probably also be converted to ASCII 
characters like full-width ones.

Or is this just another confusion caused by loose use of the term 
'character', meaning here glyph?
