I'm not saying you're wrong, but it would help if someone could dig up 
real examples of lists that:

1. Need a label that is not a section heading.

_and_

2. Could not be moved away from the main flow of the document without 
affecting the document's meaning.

Then we could be sure we're solving a real problem.
