It is not the partitioning/grouping into bases itself that are in question, what is in question if we really should allow write empty positions in bases.
Example 21 decimal equals 210 in ternary (2*9)+(1*3)+(0*1) while in NyaN numbers represented in bases do not have void positions =(0), so using NyaN writing 21 in ternary equals 133 (1*9)+(3*3)+(1*3) this way to write numbers is of course working for anybase so ternary 1000000000000000000100000000000000000001/201 would be much easier perform using NyaN
