Funny enough, page 39 of the 11th Circuit's opinion addresses precisely this point.

Oh, riiight. I see now. It's so the hoards of illiterate Georgians who come to the Supreme Court can recognize the central hallway as a place of law.

Granted that's probably not exactly what the Supreme Court has in mind, but the basic point is that context is what matters and the Supreme Court manages to put the Ten Commandments in a judicial context in a way Judge Moore doesn't--and won't--do. The use of Roman numerals in place of words is a significant detail in that distinction.
