Subject: Reasonable to allow <data> in ol/ul/sl/dl?

Currently none of the list elements allow <data> as direct children.

I'm thinking maybe they should.

The immediate use case is capturing metadata that reflects details of a list
from legacy content, such as the numbering or bullet style details and the
initial number. I can think of other list-specific metadata that might be
useful, such as subject classification or whatever.

I think that we should be following a general principle of allowing <data>
anywhere that it isn't clearly inappropriate, and I can't think of any
obvious reason why it would be inappropriate in a list.

Is there some history as to why <data> is not allowed as direct list
children, other than "we never thought about it"?
