The Working Group discussed this issue in its face to face meeting
of January 2006, and concluded that the clarification needed is
editorial, not substantive.  Accordingly, I'm marking this issue
editorial, and hoping that the editors can revised the relevant
parts of the specification before Datatypes leaves Last Call.

For the record, the basic principles to be made clearer are
(as suggested in the description):

(1) empty list = empty list
(2) the values of each primitive type are distinct from those of
other primitive types, but ordinary types have value spaces which
contain (some of) the same values as those of the primitives.

So the answer to the original poster's questions are:  
if you mean 'l2' not 'l1', then yes the lists are identical,
and yes, the two empty lists are identical.
