We agree that this list should be a bulleted list, but as it is written this way in the WCAG 2.0 recommendation and we are not changing the content of WCAG itself at this time it makes sense to leave the understanding document in alignment with it. 

Thanks for the comment, you are right, but the most we can do at this time is add this to our list of errata.
