I'm wondering what "The list-item counter is a real counter" means. So
far as I know, there is no definition for a pseudo-counter... Real as
opposed to what? Perhaps 'real' in that it can be manipulated via
'counter-increment' and 'counter-reset' props; in which case I would
suggest omitting that first clause and just saying, "The list-item
counter may be directly affected using the 'counter-increment' and
'counter-reset' properties."

How does the implicit 'list-item' counter interact with a counter the
author declares and names 'list-item' that overlaps in scope?

Best wishes,
