Ah, that is what I wanted to know.

Another way to make both backwards compatible and web compatible might be special casing for such mis-parented `<ol>` mentioned in [the first comment](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5477#issue-686868744) to have wrapped with “anonymous list item” for the purpose of counters (effectively, the same as option 3 in the first comment), since the author's intention is clear to do so in such cases.

(Or even more, make indeed generate a list item box for such “anonymous list item” for layout purpose, similar to generate anonymous internal table boxes for table layout; of course, it might introduce another compatibility issues.)
