Ah, I was inclined to say they always exist (but only generate boxes when `display:list-item` on the originating element), but your point about infinite trees is well-taken.  (I mean, the element tree isn't observable, so it being infinite but only being allowed to generate finite box trees is theoretically okay, but awkward to talk about.)

I mean, `::marker` pseudos can't ever generate *meaningfully* generate more `::marker`s, because they don't accept `display`.  We could make that more explicit when talking about the implicit generation.
