Whether to have section 12 and whether to mark it optional was already
discussed and resolved in May.

    - RESOLVED: Define cjk longhand list numbering up to 100,000
                with fallback to cjk-decimal beyond, allow UAs to
                implement longhand beyond that limit, put definition
                for that in informative appendix.

What is the point of pushing it out to the next level if the spec work
is already done and the feature is marked at-risk?
