Sorry, but this (and the rest of your email, and the replies from others) isn't really an answer to my question.
Let's keep it concrete: If I have a, can I link to the blog posts via an ItemList or not? So, is the following snippet an example of how ItemList is intended to be used?

      "@context": "",
      "@type": "Blog",
      "blogPost": {
        "@type": "ItemList",
        "itemListElement": [
          { "@type": "BlogPosting", ... },

In other words, can I as a publisher expect such data to be interpreted correctly? Do I as a data consumer have to reasonable expect data of this shape?
