I agree that the implication in the test that Hebrew counter style must
only be implemented up to a fixed ceiling is problematical.

There seem to be other issues in the test as well: unless I am
misunderstanding:

<ol start="10999">
<li title="10999">י׳תתקצט</li>
<li title='12000'>20000</li>
<li title='12≠001'>20001</li>

I would expect the last two lines to be:

<li title='11000'>11000</li>
<li title='11001'>11001</li>
