2.2.1 has five conditions/clauses (UL, at least one of the following is true).
2.5.2 has three conditions (OL, at least one of the following is true).
3.1.5 has three conditions (OL, one or more of the following is true).
4.2.2 has two conditions (OL, *all* of the following must be true).

Not exactly consistent.  Of the four, only 4.2.2 *could* be broken into two independent success criteria.  IMHO that would be more readable, but if you call the two clauses conditions instead of success criteria, that does eliminate some ambiguity.

There still is the issue of style.  When to use bullets used for conditions, and when to use numbering?
