I would say that it depends upon the type of list. A case can 
certainly be made that for an ordered list the order of 
presentation of the list is semantically important, but for an 
unordered list it is not semantically inportant but only 
presentational. However, CSS does not distinguish between 
ordered and unordered lists.
