I don’t. Who’s this ”we” you are talking about, and why do they want to make
<details> author-stylable even before a single browser has _any_ support to
the element, at the functional level?

Does it? Why do you imply the visual concept of a ”disclosure triangle”, and
how does that relate to the behavior proposed for ”::marker” in some draft?

I know that many CSS property names are misleading. But list-style-type, as
defined in published CSS recommendations, isn’t bound to any ”::marker”.
