User style sheets could possibly override list style types and
delete/change the marks. So, if it's very important for the author
that the list style are there, in a certain form, it's probably better
to write them into HTML (or some other source language).

Yes, I'd guess that 99 is enough for 99.99% of all lists.

But I don't see the need to limit the range if we chop section 4.3.
