Right, OK, my bad. I totally missed that the "should" requirement specifies a particular mechanism to be used. I guess in that case HTML is not currently following the "should" requirement.

Do you think it's a problem that it seems impossible for HTML to follow the "should" requirement without magic child counters, or [other unspecified mechanisms](https://groups.google.com/d/msg/mozilla.dev.platform/5V37Xg997Mg/Ei-2XJNJAwAJ)?

I'm not sure. Example 16 applies counter-increment to `ol.evens`, and example 17 applies content: to `ol::marker`. Maybe those are just typos.
