Well, every bit of markup added is permanent, and it's one more thing
to remember to escape.  Redundant kinds of lists aren't so bad because
they're not taking up a whole character, but yes if it were just me I
would only have one kind of list.  Anyway, I missed that it's double
underscore, not *s.  In that case, it won't be a burden so I'm not
worried.  Concern withdrawn!
