This is the code the stylesheets generate.
Maybe this is a kind of 'minimization' for attribute/value pairs which
might be valid if the value is equal to the attribute?

OK, this works. But has the disadvantage of changing the appearaance
of any <p> inside <li>.

In the meantime I found a solution which works for me:

Use <simpara> instead of <para> for <listitem>s. This generates
<li> without <p> and it looks like expected. The use of the
'spacing' attribute is not necessary in this case.
