Ah, a key point.

Then I agree, I think we do have at least a subtle difference in
implicit counter models for 'list-item' and 'page'.

Yes, that's a possibility.  The text in css3-page addresses the
situation where the author explicitly declares a counter named 'page'
which collides or overlaps in scope with the implicit counter. I don't
see anything explicit in that regard spec'd for 'list-item'. Am I
missing it?

Best wishes,
