Ah, thank you!  I knew I was missing something, because I thought I
remembered something along those lines when you mentioned it.

Okay, I'll change things so that Lists agrees with 2.1.  I'll also add
a property that controls the attachment (with the initial value
matching 2.1's behavior), make position:marker consult that property
when deciding where to position things, and set that property
appropriately (to the desired all-on-the-same-side behavior) on
<ol>/<ul> in the recommended default stylesheet.
