If we aren't dealing with a Web-compat issue over numbering `list-item` descendants of an `ol[reversed]` that *aren't* `li` elements, I think my preference here would be to define a `list-increment` property that increments a `list-item` counter but only on `display: list-item` boxes.

Then the UA style sheet can say `ol[reversed] > li { list-increment: -1; }`, and anyone who wants to turn off the increment can write `X { list-increment: none; }` without disturbing any `counter-increment` declarations or instantiating a superfluous `list-item` counter (that might then show up in `li:marker { content: counters(list-item, ".") }`, which is a little nice.

Wrt Web-compat, I don't think structures like the following are particularly common? This is what would change--because we wouldn't be reversing the numbering on that DIV.
<ol reversed>
      <div style="display: list-item">two</div>
