Aloha Nicolas,

Interesting observations.  Thanks.

The relation seems obvious to me because my model comes from printed
works, which commonly include enumerated lists typeset within

Perhaps given the limitation of the HTML spec and the structure of
paragraphs in Org-mode it will always be necessary to have the LaTeX
exporter take care of setting lists inside paragraphs.

Thanks again for your help with this.

All the best,
