I'm still a bit confused about what we're trying to solve here.

The intent behind [1] was not to provide list semantics. Rather, we wanted
to allow a modifier on the token - e.g. "on;skip-video", or some such.
Similar to Key's "user-agent;substr=MSIE" and so on. As such, I'm not sure
the whole list discussion applies?

Am I missing something obvious? :-)
