When thinking of the complicated numbering scheme problem, herešs something
I thought about, although not necessarily related to the numbering scheme
problem.

Why not permit list elements to be in the content of other list elements?
Herešs what I mean.  The ol and ul elements now only allow li elements,
right?  Thus, to make a list inside another list, wešd have to put that in
an li element, like so:

<ul>
    <li>
        <ul>
            <li>...</li>
        </ul>
    </li>
</ul>

Why not instead do this:

<ul>
    <ul>
        <li>...</li>
    </ul>
</ul>

In some cases, this makes much more structural sense.
