behnam has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/predefined-counter-styles:

== Names of Arabic counters do not match Unicode/CLDR naming ==
The numeral set called `persian` in the document is called as 
"EXTENDED ARABIC-INDIC" in Unicode standard, to be used in Persian, 
Urdu, and many other Asian languages/locales.

The letter set called `persian-alphabetic` looks good.

Finally, Abjad Numerals need better research before put here, as there
 are two main version of it: Easter (mostly used in North-East Africa,
 Saudi Arabia and West Asia) and Western (a.k.a. Maghrebi, mostly used
 in North-West Africa). And, of course, the character set for 
Persian/Urdu edition of the Eastern version would be different from 
the Arabic-language one.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abjad_numerals for some basic info, 
but we need better resources to move forward.
