I never claimed that people are not using their local scripts to enter
numbers. However, none of your examples is about Chinese numerals using
an ASCII full stop as a decimal point. The only thing I claimed about
usage (actually only repeating haiyang kang's earlier claim) is that
nobody would enter Chinese numerals with a keyboard and then use full
stop as the decimal separator.

So all your counter-examples just don't apply - I don't deny them.
