The code also doesn't seem to make use of WORD_NORMALIZE_NUMBER. Does it
matter? Right now, numbers are rejected as WORD_NORMALIZE_NOALPHA if
allow_numbers is false. However, I think the individual status bits are
only checked when explaining why entries from bad_word_list are rejected.
So, I don't think there's much point to having a WORD_NORMALIZE_NUMBER
