Not a direct answer - but 1,2,3 are just Symbols for {wa', cha', wej} 
and so on. Since we do not know how Klingons write, only how they speak, 
this question is not a real question.

{wa' yIHoH} is identical to {1 yIHoH}.

We have some canon examples which use numbers, but of course, they were 
are written out, because they were made for the actors. They would not 
know how to read {5000 qelIqam}.
