I don't think it is a bad list. Many of them seem quite
useful to me.

A screen reader user could easily skip to the copyright
information of the article he is reading.

error and warning:
Non-CSS-aware browsers like Lynx could display errors and
warnings in distinctive way (e.g. in red).

A browser could implement a shortcut for jump-to-search.

example, note and issue:
Without CSS it might be otherwise quite hard to tell, where
a group of example paragraphs end and normal content starts.
The same with "note" and "issue", although I'm not quite sure,
should the "issue" really be included into that list - doesn't
seem such a common use-case to me.
