Well, it *is* preferred in Saudi Arabia, as far as I know. Also in a few
other countries, but the exact list is controversial.

I also know that a few countries are changing their preferences in this
or that way: the last change I heard about was from a Syrian Microsoft
employee who said that Syria is now preferring European digits. I also
know that Tunisia also prefers European digits from the time I visited
the country.
