So why bother with <ol> ? IMHO, <ol> indicates a strong importance to the
content order, <p> indicates a weak importance, and <ul> indicated no
importance at all (I can remove some <p> in articles without loosing too much
data/ideas -- that is what is done when resuming a book in school, I can't
remove an item into a <ol> without changing the result).

And in the case of comments, order is very important.

> So it's not correct to say that comments must be marked up in an <ol>.

I did not write "must" but "should".
