I think if we get something like this to work

   li[marker]::marker { content:attr(marker) }

we can more easily introduce a new markup-level feature that can be  
implemented in terms of CSS. I think the above is more or less how we  
already expect ::marker to work, so basically we need to get ::marker in  
browsers and experiment a little bit with it. Not sure if we need to get  
much more complicated than that.
