It depends on the class of products.

For a human who will get a bulleted list versus a numbered list,  
there might be a different meaning. If the person is conscious that  
he/she can reorder the things.

For a strict XML parser, it doesn't make any difference, because  
elements are always ordered in a document. To make a difference, it  
would require another level of programming for semantics  
interpretation, with a benefit which is not clear.

I don't know any tools implementing the difference between the twos.
