This leaves the only option to create two new elements from scratch: an
inline-list element and an inline-list item element, meant to not close the
<p> tag. The only remaining question is, do developers really need it?
You state your primary concern is accessibility. But there is a spec
dealing with this, WAI-ARIA. You can define your own scheme for inline list
using inline elements (namely, span) coupled with role=list for the
container, role=group for internal grouping (sublists) and role=listitem
for list items. Which is the default do-not-set role for HTML lists.
Also note that you can rely upon there attributes to style elements with
CSS using attribute selectors.
