I was finally able to come with a solution. I've posted details as an
answer on TeX.sx, but also updated the tex4ht sources with a
\arabicdigits macro. It is available when you require Polyglossia or
Babel packages (it is not necessary to require the Arabic language).

Here is still the issue that Arabic with both Babel and Polyglossia
fails with tex4ht, this is something what we really should fix. I will
be on vacations next few weeks and mostly without access to a
computer, so it may take some time.

Best regards,
