Does `counter-set` have any implementations? That could create compat issues.

If there's no compatibility objections, I agree that it is preferable if `counter-set` overrides any increments.  If I specify `counter-set: chapter 5`, that's probably what I want.

The downside is that `counter-reset: chapter 5` would work differently; an increment declared on the same element would add to the initial value.  But that's less likely to be a problem once `counter-set` is supported; `counter-reset` can be used as intended, on the parent element that defines the counter scope.
