For what it's worth, reimplementing Gecko's list numbering using counters is something I'd like to do; it's just not so high on the priority list these days. (Our current list numbering code has a bunch of weird bugs that our counter implementation does not have. That said, I think implementing list numbering using counters might require implementing the new 'counter-set' in addition to the existing 'counter-increment' and 'counter-reset'.) -David -- 𝄞 L.
