I agree, and https://drafts.csswg.org/css-lists/#list-style-position-property already says

> If the list item is an inline box: this value is equivalent to inside.

Why do you want to do it at used-value time? Blockifications happen at computed-value time in other cases, so it seems inconsistent.

> mostly to prevent the case where we have a block element like `<details>` with `display: inline list-item` and fail to blockify the marker

But I don't think it should be blockified in that case, because `list-style-position: outside` will behave as `inside`?

OK, I see that in Firefox the marker is still outside in `<details style="display: inline list-item; list-style-position: outside;">` even though it produces an inline box. Why?
