The 3/3a/4 dichotomy can surely be addressed only by
allowing an individual <LI> not to participate in
the general numbering scheme; thus one might postulate
a markup such as the following :

	<li> material for section 3 </li>
	<li ol=none value="3a"> material for section 3a </li>
	<li> material for section 4 </li>

where 'ol=parent' is otherwise implied, and 'ol="named-ol"'
is allowed but rarely if ever needed.  

[I am using here the convention of an unquoted string for 
 a keyword and a quoted string for a variable; not sure if 
 this is in accordance with current or proposed syntax.]
