Browsing through it seems your approach is fine, I'll look at details

That DetectSpecialNumbers may get in the way as it also detects
abbreviated dates and other not so obvious strings that can be converted
to numeric values. Many times that is not wanted for file data. Whether
it's good to have it enabled as default for clipboard and column data
I'm not sure. I think it doesn't harm to try..
