It doesn't work thru the UA stylesheet:

1. That requires that it show up in the serialization of the computed value of 'counter-increment', which no browser does, and which Firefox tried to do but backed off from.
2. It means that any non-initial value for counter-increment needs to explicitly reproduce the 'list-item' behavior. I don't think it's reasonable to allow people to ignore 'list-item' for the *CSS* inherent behavior, but require them to pay attention to it for the *HTML* inherent behavior.
