Markdown numbered lists - 1s only

Before this issue, in the markdown editor, numbered lists were numbered with 1s only. For example:

1.
1.
1.
1.

Afterwards, the numbered lists get set to:

1.
2.
3.
4.

I personally would prefer the 1. 1. 1. 1. behavior, as that simplifies things and is more correct markdown

(Mastering Markdown · GitHub Guides)

Could we change this to be a preference/setting?

How is that more correct?
Ordered Lists are supposed to count upwards for each level.

If you want a list without numbers, use an unordered list.

The markdown has 1s but when you render the markdown it counts upwards. This makes manually managing the numbered list easier. See the GitHub Markdown link.
