OK, since we're trying to avoid nested blocks (to reduce renderer
implementation complexity, not markup complexity), it seems that we should
specify a default list style sheet in the JEP?

Byron, this style sheet works well in all browsers if we use padding-left.
What if XHTML-IM recommends margin-left instead? Which default style rule
would be appropriate?
