Several groups have observed the need for counter style support. The Arabic Layout TF finds that it is needed for Persian support. Richard Ishida reports that vertical text lists require it as well. Firefox is observed to provide this support.
it's also not easy to script this feature, because the exact distance between the list counter and the list text isn't well defined.
If a quoted string (as per spec) was supported, list-style: "36", it'd be much easier to write a CSS polyfill at least. Although the whole @-rule isn't a huge implementation burden either and affects a lot of people.
