In Info and Relationships, an unordered list is allowed, however, in Meaningful Sequence it quotes 

"A sequence is meaningful if the order of content in the sequence cannot be changed without affecting its meaning. For example, if a page contains two independent articles, the relative order of the articles may not affect their meaning, as long as they are not interleaved. In such a situation, the articles themselves may have meaningful sequence, but the container that contains the articles may not have a meaningful sequence.

The semantics of some elements define whether or not their content is a meaningful sequence. For instance, in HTML, text is always a meaningful sequence. Tables and "ordered lists" are meaningful sequences, but unordered lists are not."

Why do they contradict each other?

I need to use un-ordered lists with bullets. How can I pass Meaningful  Sequence?
