but the footnote counter-style has specified "suffix: '';", so these should
be rendered without the '.' character (e.g. "* One").

Thanks! I'll fix shortly.

> 3.  Section 3.7 defines the "additive-symbols" value as "[ <integer> && [
<string> | <image> | <identifier> ] ]#". This means that the values would
be defined like "additive-symbols: 10 X 9 IX 5 V 4 IV 1 I;", however the
counter-styles in Section 5.1 (the numeric predefined counters) are defined
as "additive-symbols: 10 X, 9 IX, 5 V, 4 IV, 1 I;" using the ',' character
to separate additive symbol tuples. Which of these is the authoritive
syntax?

You're misinterpreting the grammar - # means "repeat one or more times,
separated by commas". This is defined in the Values & Units spec.
