So where the signs say "First St", "Second St", etc, and Waze has "1st St", "2nd St", etc, that is wrong, looks wrong in the client, and causes searches to fail? Is this written is our road naming standard somewhere?
It seems to me that the fuzzy search engines can treat "XIV" as a synonym for "14" and search correctly.
Of course, writing "the 14th" instead of "XIV" goes back to the matter of pronunciation and how to get "Louis" spoken as "Louie" which would be a good way to handle pronunciation of Roman numerals too.
