Ok, I understand.

Speaking of scope: elements with "display: list-item" increment the 
list-item counter. Is that with the same scoping rules as 
counter-increment? Namely, if the counter is not in scope at this point, 
a new counter is created with the usual scoping rules.

Side question: are pseudo-elements (::before, ::after) allowed to have 
"display: list-item" or the counter-* properties? What about ::marker?
