We could just say that they can't be combined. The use cases seem
slim, and the amount of work to get interoperable implementations
(e.g., getting SVGs to interoperably co-exist, size-wise and
position-wise, with glyphs) seems high.

Then we could do:

 @counter-style lower-norwegian-glyphs {
   alphabetic: a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z æ ø å;
 }

 @counter-style lower-norwegian-images {
   images: url(a.svg) url(b.svg) url(c.svg); /* etc */
 }
