12.5 (Lists) says:

   # CSS 2.1 offers basic visual formatting of lists. An element with
   # 'display: list-item' generates a principal box for the element's
   # content and, depending on the values of 'list-style-type' and 'list-
   # style-image', possibly also a marker box as a visual indication
   # that the element is a list item.

For clarity, can we have
s/principal box/principal block box/

Although 9.2.1 and 9.2.4 do spell out that list items generate 
block-level boxes, 12.5 currently fails to clearly specify that the box 
generated is a block container box (and hence a block box).

Cheers,
