Your understanding is almost correspond to my intention except I do not thinkg think the attribute name style:default-list-level is better. Actually the way to change the list level of paragraph through applying the numbering style is used very commonly, not just used to set the initial level of paragraph. User can customize the paragraphy style at any time. For example, whatever OpenOffice3.0 or Symphony 1.2, we can create a paragraph style called "ParaStyle" by style list dialog, set its parent style as "Heading 1", set its Numbering style as "List 1". Then we can apply this "ParaStyle" to some paragraph. The saved XML would be like:
<style:style style:name="ParaStyle" style:family="paragraph" style:parent-style-name="Heading_20_1" style:list-style-name="List_20_1"/>.
Now we would like to develop the feature that allow user to customize the list level in the paragraph style. For example, in the paragraph applied the style "ParaStyle", we can edit the paragraph style by popup menu, in the paragraph style dialog, select Numbering tab, we can see "List 1" is selected in the list box. Under the numbering style list box, we would like to add some UI to specify the list level for this paragraph style. Note, this UI is enabled only when Numbering style is not "None". Corresponding XML format, the style:list-level attribute is only valid when the style:list-style-name exists. The saved XML would be like:
<style:style style:name="ParaStyle" style:family="paragraph" style:parent-style-name="Heading_20_1" style:list-style-name="List_20_1" style:list-level="1"/>.
I've add this interpretation to the wiki in oder to help members understand: http://wiki.oasis-open.org/office/add_list_level_attribute_to_style%3Astyle

As the above interpretation, although style:list-level is similar with style:default-outline-level, they are different in nature.
