CSS Counter Styles Level 3 already defines many more Chinese markers.
The big writings are defined as {simpl,trad}-chinese-{formal,informal}
[1] and Earthly branch and Heavenly stems are defined as cjk-earthly-
branch and cjk-heavenly-stem correspondingly [2].
Suzhou numerals are not specified in that spec, but there is a chance
it can be defined with the newly-introduced @counter-style at-rule in
the spec [3].
So most of those you are requesting have been in the spec (and the spec
has been in Candidate Recommendation for quite a while), and Firefox has
implemented them since long ago [4]. If you want the support in other
browsers, you should probably file bugs to them.
