Firsteen and Seconteen: Should we leave the Base 12 system?

English has eleven, twelve, Dozen (12), Gross (144 or 12^2), Great Gross (1728 or 12^3) exist since it originated as a Base 12 Number system. To leave the Base 12 system, we need to remove the artifacts of the old system; that is, remove eleven and twelve from the system, and use firsteen and seconteen to be consistent with thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, and nineteen.
