Subject: Re: [dita-comment] Consider adding an attribute "numeration" to "ol"'s

I think this observation makes it a good time to recall that the data element can serve exactly this role of providing values (structured, even) to a process. This becomes especially important for content that is being manipulated by _javascript_ because data values can be picked up as arrays or JSON values for direct use in behaviors as well as in styles. This leaves @outputclass free to have the more pure role of representing semantic intent for an element (eg, binding a _javascript_ function to the element), as Michael was trying to preserve.

Maybe indeed instead of allowing numeration as an attribute on OLs by modifying the specification the DITA OT stylesheets could support by default looking for certain specific @outputclass attribute values on certain elements and provide some styling based on them.
