It was designed before 'symbolic' was offered. I think 'symbolic' will
be better than decimal fallback.

The benefit of having a shorthand is so that authors don't have to
think about what the most common property/value is called. So I
probably not use the shorthand with type, but I can see that it could
work.

CSS properties mostly have an initial value, I don't see why 'type'
shouldn't.

Another comment is that 'type' is a bit too generic, how about
'list-pattern'?
