Paste from Word does not recognize start number in an ordered list

Suppose we have the following list in a Word document, where user set starting number to "4":

4.	An ordered list
5.	With non-default starting number

after pasting it into CKEditor, it becomes:

		An ordered list</li>
		With non-default starting number&nbsp;</li>

although we support the "Start" number in "Numbered List Properties" dialog.

To reproduce it, check the attached document.

Some common scenarios

Actually most of our users is not an IT knowledgeable, so they're not familiar with the "shift + enter" between list. So they happened to create that kind of lists with the following steps:

  1. First you set up a new list, by clicking numbering icon on the ribbon, or just type number "1" on the document.
  1. Press ENTER after each end of list item, and then MS Word will automatically generate incremented number for the next list item.
  1. Somehow when users want to put a paragraph between list, they just press ENTER and then delete the automatically generated numbering (with backspace button), and then they write a paragraph there.
  1. Last, when they want to continue the numbering, they just type the next numbering, or click the numbering icon, and then pick "continue numbering".

There's another way to create this kind of list, here's the steps:

  1. For example create numbering list first, with 5 list items.
  1. When the 5 list items completed, somehow the user forget to add some paragraph between number 3 and 4, so they just press enter at the end of list item 3, and then there'll be number 4 with blank items appeared between number 3 and 5 (at this step, there'll be 6 list items generated).
  1. Last, they just delete the automatically generated number, and then write a new paragraph.
