Hi,

I've been pondering this on css-discuss [CSSD].

Another possible approach would be to allow elements other than <li/> in
<ol/> - perhaps just <div>.

Conceptually one doesn't find divs in lists - only list-items. One could
argue that something that isn't a list-item within a list should be treated
as if it weren't in the list, i.e excluded from counters and perhaps some
list formatting. 

Cheers,
Dave.
