Do you agree the following list needs to be marked up?

I think not, because it's clear from context that it is a list and the
markup would not add any meaning to the user. The only disadvantage
(AFAIK) is that a computer cannot tell you it's a list and you can't
use CSS to make it blue and flashing. There is no requirement in HTML
that a list be marked up as such; the same holds true of abbreviations
and even links. If I write "Visit w3.org now!" I don't need to mark up
w3.org as a link; although it may be a nice thing to do and it's
certainly not forbidden. In this case, there is more of a disadvantage
because the user has to manually type in w3.org to visit, instead of
just activating the link.
