Isn't most of it already solved by ":set nrformats-=octal"? Cp :help 'nrformats'.

This would be the only difference to existing behavior, but typically those
numbers have a lot of leading 0-padding, so the case where CTRL-X reduces the
width would be rare, and I think it's best handled by manually correcting it
rather than have a new global option.
