Are "before" and "after" 'added-content' pseudo-elements, as BR is an
added-content element? Will the "content" property apply only to such
added-content elements?

Where would "LI:before" appear relative to a list-item marker? Or would
the list-item marker be considered a default "before" pseudo-element
such that styling could be applied to the marker (eliminating the need
for a more specific marker pseudo-element)?

How? Are incrementable variables part of the proposal?
