Good catch! The sentence that currently reads

> When rendering li elements, non-CSS user agents are expected to use the ordinal value of the li element to render the counter in the list item marker.

was meant to read "user agents"; that was missed when we introduced the definition of "ordinal value".

That said, it sounds like perhaps that will be unnecessary soon, with proposals such as https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/4816, or the work you mentioned you and Tab intend to submit. (Assuming they gain the requisite multi-implementer interest.)

Yep, my OP request is definitely fulfilled; thank you for your work!
