Yes, you are right. I got mixed up between selectors and properties. Sorry 
for that...

What I actually meant was to have list-style-type property become valid and 
common for the ::marker selector.

In that case we can get rid of the content property and define a custom 
string using the list-style-type property, having its definition expanded by 
<string>. This way the look of a ::marker depended only on one single 
property. Not either this, or sometimes that, or other times another. See my 
point?

Cheers,
