Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The example is actually entirely as intended currently.

There are three examples with the same list. One in the <ol> section, where the
order _does_ matter, because the order is the order in which I lived in those
countries. Then there are two examples in the <ul> section, where the order is
incidental, but showing that the lists are still ordered  the first example is
alphabetical, and the second example has the countries listed by their net
worth in 2007 (their "account balance"). In the two <ul> cases, the order
doesn't really matter, but they are still ordered. That is the point that this
example is trying to make.

Does that make more sense? I don't really know how to make it clearer in the
spec.
