Higher than 10?? I always thought it was higher than 50 or so.

At any rate, I agree that the parenthetical is clunky and no fun to look at.

I don't think that writing numbers in parentheses was ever a rule of writing. And I definitely don't think that anyone ever argued that it was easier to read. I thought it was simply a method of avoiding typos. If you write the number twice, there is less likelihood of a mistake occurring.
