I'm sorry to say that currently this isn't possible with some hackery. 
Your two options are basically
1) wait for the restructure that A. Pagaltzis (?) is working on
2) Create two pseudo elements, 1 for <ol> and another for </ol> and add 
them at the start end with suitable containers.

Let me know if this isn't clear enough.
