I only meant that the registry be more restrictive with issues such as identifying  common vs historic native digits, not the more general problem of visually similar characters.
If the list of common vs historic digits is well-defined and easily known then this is a non-issue, since it can be universally applied. If not, then we shouldn't prescribe that clients guess at the list. Asmus message indicated it wasn't well prescribed and varied regionally, unless I misunderstood his meaning.

The problem is that that is not a well-specified criterion.  Do you want registration rules about l vs 1?
