I18N-ISSUE-135: List type list [HTML5-prep]

4.5.5 The ol element

he <ol> element. The 'type' attribute has five potential types: decimal, lower-alpha, upper-alpha, lower roman numerals, and upper roman numerals. Should this list also include the values from CSS3-lists (particularly near http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-lists/#predefined-numeric)?

I realize that this short list probably exists for legacy compatibility reasons with existing markup. However, it would be good to recognize the wider world of list-style-type. This could be accomplished by explicitly allowing the fully-qualified names of CSS-Lists attributes, perhaps optionally, as values of the type attribute.
