HTML technique H48 deals with marking up lists. One of the tests is:
"Check that content that has the visual appearance of a bulleted list is
marked as an unordered list".
Comment: Even when bullets are not used,  a sighted user can  still
determine that certain items make up a list. For instance, top-nav or footer
links placed  in one line horizontally. A sighted user would be able to
relate these items as a group of n items. 
These should also be marked up as a list with no bullets.    
So I suggest that the test should be worded as:
"Check that content that has the visual appearance of a list (with / without
bullets)  is marked as an unordered list".
