I second the motion to use <h> instead of <name> to name a list.

I believe ALL lists (ol, ul, dl, nav) should support it.  I've be asked
to put headings in list for years, and to satisfy my employers I've
resorted to this:

<ul>
<b>Highlights</b>
<li>In exciting beige</li>
<li>Square case doesn't roll</li>
<li>Large size is easier to find</li>
</ul>

Since authors and editor do name their lists, a heading element would
let me create valid content that my employers will agree to:

<ul>
<h>Highlights</h>
<li>In exciting beige</li>
<li>Square case doesn't roll</li>
<li>Large size is easier to find</li>
</ul>
