Well, hex is not mandatory... I guess we could also use decimal 
notation, ex:

4.10.3 = 4*1000000 + 10*1000 + 3 = 4010003

It's just that if one makes the mistake of using leading zeros to make 
it "look good" with 9 digits (e.g. "004010003") then they end up in an 
octal number and comparisons will fail. That's probably why I have a 
tendency to use hex instead of decimal for this kind of stuff since the 
leading zero (e.g. 0x040a03) is perfectly fine in hex notation.

What do others think? Decimal or hex?
