One thing to consider here is that 'list-style-position' defaults to
'outside'.  Is this the correct default in this case?  This is a
default that affects authors who don't use CSS at all or only use it
a little.

I think that's why browser vendors have been under a lot of pressure
not to follow the spec here.
