Danbri and I have been discussing how to resolve your issue about the 
wellformedness of lists:


We are proposing to add the following note to the text at:


as the last paragraph.

NOTE:  It is possible to construct RDF graphs that use the RDF collections 
vocabulary to partially describe a list.  Similarly there are graphs that 
use this vocabulary in a way that is consistent with the RDF(S) formal 
semantics, yet do not represent "well formed" lists.

We considered trying to trying to provide a full prose account of the 
wellformedness of lists, but are currently disinclined to attempt such an 
intricate task in natural language.

Will adding this note address your concern.  If not, could you please 
suggest alternative text that you would find more satisfactory.
