No no no. Addition of Unicode identifiers has a well-designed, deliberate specification, with a PEP and all. The support for non-ASCII digits in float appears to be ad-hoc, and not founded on actual needs of actual users.
I wonder how carefully right-to-left scripts were considered when PEP 3131 was discussed.
IIRC, some Hebrew users have spoken in favor of the PEP, despite the obvious difficulties it would create. I may misremember, but I think someone pointed out that they had these difficulties all the time, and that it wasn't really a burden.
Unicode specifies that one should always use "logical order" in memory, and that's what the PEP does. Rendering is then a tool issue.
