Of course, authors would be allowed to define both (or anything else) in 
their own stylesheets.

The question is, should we have both pre-defined in UA stylesheets? Do 
they have a different purpose and could both be useful in different 
cases? I think not: one of them is good enough for UA stylesheets. 
Authors can always (re)define @counter-style rules.
