Born the same week John Glenn circled the Earth for the first time...

Here's how I understand this to work:

looks aboout right.
Of course the <xsl:variable name="lists" select="QName('','ol'),QName('','ul')"/>
is really just there to give Michael a chance to point out that a more
elegant approach would be use a schema that put all lists into a list
substitution group or schema type and then select on that schmema
construct rather than selecting on names and maintaining a list of names
(or QNames) in the stylesheet, but that requires a schema aware processor.

In the case of DITA there is no base class underlying ul and ol so I wrote a simple isList() function that serves the same purpose.
