I think the marker positioning aspects are fairly unstable, given
they haven't been reviewed in depth by anyone except Tab, afaik.

We already have a resolution on the books to split the draft into
a counter-styles module and a lists module, so spinning up a new
draft is already required. Tab's just proposing to shift @counter-style
into the counter-styles module, alongside the counter style definitions.
