The current CSS Lists and Counters Module Level 3 draft [1] defines the
same sequence of numeric characters as both the 'cambodian' [2] and
'khmer' [3] list styles, but does not define a Cambodian/Khmer alphabetic
list style.

Page 63 of Franklin Huffman’s “Cambodian System of Writing“ [4] states:

   For the pagination preliminary to the main body of a book,
   and for listing major headings within a chapter, the
   consonants of the alphabet are used in their dictionary

My understanding is that an Khmer consonantal list style would be used by
Khmer speakers if it were available to them [5].

Can/should it be added to a future draft of css3-lists?
