I think that lists /do/ consist solely of
list items; where extra flexibility is
required is surely in what elements may
legitimately compose a list item.  There
also is a need to interrupt a list, and
thus to be able to resume the same list
later in the document (properly nested,
of course : that is, one could not suspend
an inner list and resume it once its parent
element has properly terminated).
