That is a little confusing and inconsistent with some government, construction, electrical engineering, and mining document standards. Appendices are any support documents that pertain to the document being written. If you are writing a document to support a mining project and you need to provide all of the research, analysis, policies, laws, geological studies, and other information with your document and those support documents can get to number over 100, then you need an appendix numbering system that will make sense at the first appendix, A, and at the last, even if it is 200 documents down the line. Combining alpha and numbers is also confusing because the count of single digits changes from 26 to 9 (or 10 if zero is used).

I wonder if it would make sense to group the appendices so that related
chapters would share the same letter. Then you could have appendix A1-n,
B2-n, etc.

If you need more than 10, the numbering could be A01-A99, B01-99, etc....
