The CSS Working Group just discussed `Need a way to return the max value of a counter within a scope.`.

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: Need a way to return the max value of a counter within a scope.<br>
&lt;dael> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/3667<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: THis was a feature request to add ability to retrieve highest value a counter picked in a document for something like numbering page 2 or 5. Functional notation like counter. Asking WG if interested now, future, or never?<br>
&lt;dael> [silence]<br>
&lt;dbaron> I don't think I'm particularly interested...<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Not sure how to read the silence. Can we say never?<br>
&lt;tantek> [silence] seems like enough reason to postpone discussing, maybe til f2f?<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: Functionality exists in paged CSS via special pages counter. Bit of a special case. Use case is clear there.<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: Added to triage list so can get answer from engineers soon, but no answer now. Personally in favor<br>
&lt;dael> dauwhe: Have use cases for this in paged media. See utility for long publications<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Hearing some favorable comments and the need for it. It's not never, but doesn't sound like we can resolve now. Let's close, move one, and revisit when have more information from impl.<br>
