Is there currently any way to combine the list-style-types: circle and decimal?

i.e. http://www.tendervendors.com/index.php

the reason being that i'm trying to reduce page-loading time.

If not, is this the correct mailing list, to request new features to be added to the standard?

My request is:

Could the idea of having list-style-character and list-style-shape as new style attributes, be considered for the upcoming standard?

It would be an enhancement upon the current standard, list-style-type which uses ascii/unicode characters. Because if a css statement read "list-style-character: decimal; list-style-shape: circle;" it could generate something similar to the attached image. (or the bulletpoints viewable on the website)

list-style-character, would be similar to list-style-type, in that it would support unicode character.
list-style-shape, would be several generic shapes.

each list-style-* would be seperately configurable with colour, orientation, etc, using e.g. list-style-character-(color) or list-style-shape-(orientation).

What does everyone think?
