Given that there's uncertainty as to what the default should be,
and one of the examples in css3-gcpm expects decimal fallback,
I'd want any shorthand to include the type explicitly.

E.g.

  @counter-style daggers "*" "\2020" "\2021" "\A7" "#" symbolic;

(That's not to say that I think having a shorthand at all is important,
mind you.)
