MatsPalmgren has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-pseudo] editorial: "If an element is a list item (display: list-item)" is misleading ==
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-pseudo-4/#application-in-css says
> If an element is a list item (display: list-item)

`display: list-item` is not the right definition of a list item, `display: inline list-item` can also be a list item for example. I suggest you remove the parenthetical altogether and link "list item" to its [definition](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-lists-3/#declaring-a-list-item).

(The definition in css-lists is also wrong at the moment, but that's reported in #4170)
