I wish I discovered this issue when I was working on #10557!  Chances are I wouldn't have started a long python-dev thread rehashing the same issues as I see discussed here.

In any case, in #10557, I replaced core uses of PyUnicode_EncodeDecimal() with  PyUnicode_TransformDecimalToASCII() which transforms unicode to unicode.  There should not be any change in what digits builtin number types accept, but the C-API "codec" is defined to pass through anything that is not "Nd" while replacing Nd characters with the corresponding 0-9 digit.

String to string codecs including hex have been readded in r86934. See issue 7475.
