are numbers intentionally not accepted to "help" people learn the spelling?

Of course. Why would you translate "20th" as "20-й" into Russian if you are learning Russian? I am pretty sure if you do not know the word "twentieth" in Russian, spelling is going to be the least of your troubles. You won't even be able to say it.
