Unlike this, the fingerprint (and any redundant exchange format

There are many important things in life that none the less don't belong in this particular document. Does the OpenPGP Standard specify that the UI must present fingerprints in hex? I don't think so; perhaps I missed it. Never the less, it's vital that all implementations do so: if mine shows the fingerprint in decimal while yours uses hex, we're unlikely to manage a verification. It's important, but it's not a part of the packet format.
