It's possible to transmit the class attribute with following rule
Bulleted list: (p|ol|menu|dir|pre|form)+;
        p > <ul class=p.class>:<li>;
        ol > <ul class=ol.class>;
        pre > ul:li.pre;
        form > ul:li.form;

"class=p.class" says that the class attribute of the created <ul> is equal to 
to class attribute of the original <p>.
I made these changes in Amaya/amaya/HTML.trans to keep the class attribute.

It concerns nested tags, but of course transformations keep tags content.
