What a great question. The OL number appears to be a part of the element.  I'll tinker some more. ~Ray

This would seem to have some value to the issue, but in practice in FF it does not.  It changes alignment of the list style

But try this in the code snippet:
li {
  text-indent: -0.5em;
  padding: 0 0 0 0px;
  margin: 0 0 0 0px;
  border: 1px solid red;
}
