Thank you @Loirooriol for the analysis. So two separate issues result in this differences?
1. Whether to make markers inside if not in `<ul>/<ol>` or not.
2. Whether to break or not for inside marker + `<span></span>` + `<p>`.

For 1, this WIP has the history, quoting:

> The only remaining question is whether sites depend on this behavior...
