Hey Steve

I think one absolutely critical area to think about from an
interoperability perspective is handling "interesting" markup

For example, if you have an <li> that does not have a <ol>/<ul>
parent, what does that get mapped to? Or, if you have an <li> that has
a <ol>/<ul> parent, but the parent has a role attribute that maps it
to (say) the "button" role, what does the <li> get mapped to?
