* list semantics are unnecessarily complicated for authors in that minor
differences in type warrant completely different list elements which mostly
exist due to a presentational heritage
 * definition lists provide insufficient structure for easy styling
 * authors cannot mix definition list items with non definition list items a
the same hierarchical level 
 * lists are inherently ordered and in static HTML necessarily so (why three
separate list structures then)

(see http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/ListContentModelImprovements for evolving
solution proposals)
