Hi James,

If you do C-h v org-cycle-include-plain-lists RET you read that 
a value of t allows visibility cycling and that a value of 'integrate
temporarily interprets list items as outline headlines.

When customizing, you can either set it to "Never", which is obvious.

Or to `t', which is explained.

Or to the other value, which is the symbol 'integrate.  This third 
value is mentioned in the docstring, and it is pretty obvious that 
it corresponds to "As children of outline headings", as there are
no other choices.

No -- t and 'integrate are described.

It is -- and C-h v org-cycle-include-plain-lists RET tells you this.

Well, it does say so.

Please make sure this is a real bug and not a misunderstanding on
your side.  Also please provide a patch, that's often the best way
to understand where misunderstandings lie.  Thanks!
