Numbers are best because we only have a Tex markup for a numbered list that
might be used to cross refer to a graphic. I also think that there may be
less problems with translation. (Here's the start of the alphabet in
Welsh, for instance: A B C CH D DD E F FF G GH - so letters do not always
have the advantage of being single characters)
I also think that a graphic with more than a few numbered items, certainly
if more than 9, would be very confusing.
