As a whole, the CSS Lists level 3 spec might not be stable enough. (For 
example, I don’t know how much review the layout algorithm of `position: 
marker` has gotten.) However, this specific feature (list-style-type: 
<string>) is so straightforward that I don’t see it changing in the future.

More generally, we often have multiple features in a given document that 
are relatively independent. It might be useful to talk about or even 
have in-spec markers for stability of individual sections.
