QuoteQuite frankly I find numbers just as arbitrary as classic note names, and I'd imagine them to be a lot less readable, so I don't see much motivation to implement this beyond the two hacks that are already there.
QuoteIf you're so surprised that no DAWs have this, then let me tell you that you're the first person to ever bring this issue up here or in any other context I'm aware of.
QuoteNumbers are uniform whereas traditional note names are not.
QuoteAlso, users don't know what they want until you give it to them.

Numbers are objectively less arbitrary than traditional note names. The way that two notes in harmony or in an interval sound together is determined by the difference between the notes. Understanding and working with that difference is much easier when using pure numbers. Traditional note names muck up one's ability to perceive the intervals because they arbitrarily introduce offsets (+/- 1 note) with the sharps/flats which makes determining the interval between notes at a glance much more difficult.
