What is the proposed idea/solution?
I propose that we could have an option to allow zeros at the beginning of a number in the number field

How does is solve the user problems?
In my case, this allows me to manage French postal codes without having to use a text field. Which avoids entry errors in forms for example

How was this validated?
I don't understant

Who is the target audience?
for what I know, the French who wish to manage postal codes, but in my opinion a much wider audience, because this only adds a modularity which many will benefit fro

More realistically, as an ask, how about a text field that can be configured to only allow numbers (enforced when a virtual keyboard pops up in a mobile interface), which allow zeroes at the start.

It's actually quite common to have numeric codes that start with zeroes, not just for French postal codes.
