When I write <ol lang="fa" style="list-style-type: numeric;">, I have 
told everything needed.  I want "list-style-type: 'numeric 
"۰۱۲۳۴۵۶۷۸۹"(persian digits) "."'" in your proposal.  And also when I 
write <ol lang="en" style="list-style-type: nemeric;">, I just want the 
"list-style-type: decimal".

What I try to say is that some data you want user to tell in 
list-style-type, has told in lang attribute.

About the deference between alphabetic, ordered or non-oredered, I think 
it's related to lang attribute too.

And also about the type of cjkv, you can define <ol lang="ja" 
stype="list-style-type: 'numeric informal'">

I think it's more simple than what is in WD now.
