I came up with this lousy idea that:

and then thought about it.

A list-item marker is a pseudo-element if ever there was one. So this
is a logical place for a 'marker' pseudo-element that is applicable to
all list-items and takes font and color properties.

Example declaration for bold red list-item markers on an ordered list:

  OL:marker { font-weight: bold; color: red }
