According to the spec, it seems that all predefined styles except
'decimal' could be redefined by authors via @counter-style. My
question is that, should the new defination affect other predefined
styles depend on it? For example, if 'cjk-decimal' is redefined,
should 'japanese-informal' fallback to the predefined 'cjk-decimal' or
the new one? I prefer it to only depend on the name, which means the
new one wins here.

I think this behavior, including the redefinablity of predefined
styles, should be clearly noted in section "'@counter-style' rule".
