   But then, what happens to the bullets/numbering? The relevant properties
   only apply to display type list-item. By declaring LI to be inline, bullets
   and numbering no longer apply, and the element becomes functionally
   equivalent to SPAN.

Bullets certainly have no meaning, but numbering does, (a) because you
can have inline numbered lists, and (b) because they don't have to be
numbers, they can be letters.
