Both Hebrew and the CJK styles have the "UAs *can* implement higher if they want" because there *is* a reasonable way to number at least somewhat higher in those systems, it just doesn't have widespread agreement (CJK) and/or is complex (Hebrew). In both cases, particularly in CJK, I'd *like* everyone to implement the same range and have it specified in the spec.

Other styles, based on my current knowledge, do *not* have a reasonable display strategy for higher values. Some can be done (anything additive), but it's doesn't produce reasonable results (a very very long Armenian string, for example).

If someone has evidence of a higher range being reasonably supported in the wild, and can tell me how it works, I'm happy to adjust the spec to account for it. I'm not willing, however, to offer a blanket "or you can do whatever you want, if you think it's right" for values outside the range.
