[css-counter-styles] Where can symbols() be used?

Hi,

This spec defines a symbols() function (as a <symbols-function> grammar 
term) but nothing that uses it.

I think that this spec needs to:

1. Define a <counter-style> grammar term:

     <counter-style> = <counter-style-name> | <symbols-function>

2. Import the section of Lists 3 that defines the counter() and 
counters() in terms of <counter-style>

3. Perhaps also import the definition of the 'list-style-type' property, 
also using <counter-style>. But this is a bit awkward without the other 
'list-style-*' properties …


The larger point is that CSS 2.1 + Counter Styles should be well-defined 
without Lists 3. After all, advancing Counter Styles without the rest of 
Lists is why we split them in the first place…
