String resources wouldn't be sufficient as different locales have
different rules for how to form a number string, especially when it
comes to ordinals. However, this looks more like spell-out than level
numbering and as such misses the point of the numbering provider. If we
wanted to implement spell-out I'd rather go for ICU's methods than
implementing yet another home-grown solution.
