I agree that list-style-type: <string> is stable. We should probably trim
down the Lists spec and publish with the stable bits. Started a thread on
that in https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2015Mar/0363.html

(Also, if we do want to add a keyword, it should be mdash, not emdash,
since that's what the HTML entity is.)
