Why would it be mandatory? That would be a problem with old documents that 
don't have it.
Having a series of numbered paragraphs using the same list style can easily be 
implied to be part of the same list.
So, a numbered paragraph that does not have a list-id gets the list-id of the 
last numbered-paragraph on that same level using the same style.  If the 
previous has a different style, then a new list is started.

We should specify it indeed.  How did my above parag sound?

Sounds good.
