This seems likely entangled with bug #64231 and bug #64232.

At this point I envision revamping the style (as opposed to the spacing) types.

upright (currently "digit")
slanted (currently "letter")
heavy (currently nonexistent)

From my working copy:

"digit" seems to really mean "non-letter".  Maybe "nonletter" would be a better name.  See the only test of its value.
