And I actually don't understand why not define a font-lock face for
numbers, and leave it to major modes whether to support it always, as
an option, or not at all.

We don't have to "like" a feature to admit it, if some users might
want it.  E.g., I don't "like" line numbers at all, but it didn't
prevent me from agreeing to have them, nor from taking time to
implement them.
