Using list markup inside <nav>, misleading example in 4.4.4

In "4.4.11 Usage summary", the example on <nav> contains three <p> 
elements, each containing only one <a> element:

*<nav>  <http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/sections.html#the-nav-element>*
  <p><a href="/">Home</a>
  <p><a href="/biog.html">Bio</a>
  <p><a href="/discog.html">Discog</a>

I think this violates the recommendation in "4.4.4 The |nav| element": 
"In cases where the content of a |nav 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/sections.html#the-nav-element>| element 
represents a list of items, use list markup to aid understanding and 

If the example is supposed to present breadcrumb navigation (which might 
be regarded as something else than a list), then this should be clarified.
