There are "ordered lists" where the list order matters. Not only the
order, but the exact string used to indentify the item. Think about
software licenses, legal texts, etc. HTML 4 deprecated the start
attribute, implying that numbering is a style thing. This is not always
true, and it would be useful to have titled lists. Why not adding a
label attribute to <ul> this way...

<p>You may do these thing with this software:
</p>
<ul>
<li label="a">Modify it
<li label="b">Distribute it.
</ul>

... it could be added to <ol> but then I don't know what to do with
unlabeled items.
