  Summary:
  
    "And while you're at it, **please** consider adding <br /> to <title>.  And
    don't flame me. I know some may abuse it, but this is a common need in
    print-publishing (to add manual, readable breaks to certain types of
    titles/subheads). I'd want to use it -- judiciously -- for pdf files and a
    limited amount in html files."
  
  
  3) Allow <p>'s inside <li>

  Summary:
  
  Often it it would be useful to have multiple paragraphs inside a list item:
  
  <ul>
    <li>
      <p> ...  </p>
      <p> ...  </p>
      <p> ...  </p>
    </li>
  </ul>
  
  I can see no reason why being a "list item" implies being limited to a single
  paragraph.
  
  
  4) Allow <ol> and <ul> inside <p>

  Summary:
  
  Frequently I find myself wanting to create lists halfway through a paragraph:
  
  <p>
  Here are some main features:
  <ul>
    <li>...</li>
    <li>...</li>
  </ul>
  These features ...
  </p>
  
  Currently this is not allowed, as <ul> cannot be contained within <p>
  
  According to that font of wisdom, dictionary.com, a paragraph is
    "one of several distinct subdivisions of a text intended to separate ideas"
  and 
    "typically deals with a single thought or topic"
  
  I think a single idea may validly be expressed with an unordered list, as
  above, and thus <ul> should be allowed within <p>
