Using ol for items this long does not solve any real problem.

It will probably confuse users of screen reading software that will hear "list
item" and then a complete comment.

It will introduce problems with CSS, since not everyone is using CSS resets.

It will make the markup more bloated.

In short: No benefit and lots of trouble.

And the source order by itself carries enough meaning. The list element is not
supposed to arbitrarily say "for this the order is really, really important".

And since people nowadays seem to abuse lists almost as much as the abused
tables a few years ago, this would be encouraging the wrong kind of behavior.
