True. Though even if someone is setting counters on <li>, they're
probably doing it in order to override the standard numbering and
have therefore turned off list-style numbers. :) I agree the compat
impact is likely quite low, though possibly non-zero.

HTML needs extra counter magic to handle reversed list numbering
anyway. It's not counter-increment--that could be easily handled
in CSS--but counter-reset would need to be set in non-CSS UA code
for reversed lists.
