HTML5 spec introduces new reverse attribute on ol element.

This attribute should be removed from the spec because it doesn't adhere to
"Degrade Gracefully" design principle. Namely in legacy browsers numbering of
list items will be wrong. This is more harm then necessity to manually number
items for rare cases where list has to ordered in descending manner.
