comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
That was my first attempt, but modifying the catcodes for every number (in XeLaTeX) screwed up the superscripts used in footnotes. So a fix for this would be a great solution. I will edit my question adding the code.

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
@jon Thanks for your comments. As suggested in my post, the best option would be to use OSF everywhere, but switch them for another font's OSF digits (but I had problems with footnotes). Second best would be to selectively use lining figures in certain contexts (e.g. \AtBeginDocument but without affecting previously defined macros). We do not use environments much, and have very few commands except for sectioning and references (the public is non-TeX-savvy). Manually changing the font is more of a "best-practices" question – what kind of implementation would be efficient and unobtrusive?

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
@cfr Thanks for the suggestion. If we could reasonably use "réales" such as those (Times New Roman sort of style), we definitely would have a wider range of possible fonts – even modern fonts would be easy (just use Latin Modern). Trust me, I have envisioned a lot of possibilities, and Junicode mostly stood out because it is old fashioned while being highly legible, and (over all other such existing fonts) it can be replaced with Adobe Garamond Pro pretty much without changing line breaks (and there are lots of people who do use Adobe's fonts). So I really am looking for a LaTeX solution.

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
I personally do not mind old-style figures anywhere, but in legal documents we need 1 to look like a 1 no matter what. Hence the question – I would like to keep using OSF as much as possible because they are suitable, but I need to find a proper way to either switch fonts or replace them by lining figures when needed. The goal is to avoid forcing users to use tons of environments or commands just to get what they want – or to find an implementation that is at least sensible (e.g. it could function as some kind of "semi-math" mode).

comment Little graphs of groups
@Seirios The idea behind MWEs is that we like TeX users to try things on their own and show what the result it. It is ok to fail, and if a wizard answers you, it will probably be much nicer than what you can achieve, but it is always a good thing to try. There may be several ways to achieve what you want (symbols, graphics, whatever), so you need to try something and show us the way.
