I think this way is very confusing, especcially for people with learn
disabilities. I should first mention all the members of the fellowship
in a  normal list as a reference and then explain what their special
relation is in a language that is as simple as possible. Perhaps a
definitionlist can do that more clearly?

I don't see how you want to show your inline-list-elements when
stylesheets are turned off.  This is a requirement for accessibility.

But I think that adding a label-element to all listtypes is not a bad
idea at all.
