I know this is quite often used in other languages as well.

RB> 3a was merely added later.

Which made me think in terms of INS and DEL.

<ol start="1" lang="language">
    <ins_li date="dd" after="3" reorder="no"> Item 3a </ins_li>
    <del_li date="dd" at="2" reason="" reorder="no" />
    <li> Item 1 </li>
    <li> Item 2 </li>
    <li> Item 3 </li>
    <li> Item 4 </li>
</ol>

could be language specific and produce output like:

1.  Item 1
2.  ------
3.  Item 3
3a. Item 3a
4.  Item 4

AND

<ol>
   <ins_li date="dd" after="3" reorder="yes"> Item 3a </ins_li>
   <del_li date="dd" at="2" reason="" reorder="yes" />
   ...
</ol>

could result in:

1.  Item 1
2.  Item 3
3.  Item 3a
4.  Item 4

The "date" attribute could be used to specify in what order to apply changes.
