| What's so unusual about having a list within a list ?
| A segmentedlist is no different to any other type of list, as far as I'm
Segmented lists are a bit odd, they're very nearly an alternate
representation for tabular material.

Does http://docbook.org/tdg/html/segmentedlist.html help?
| To me, all the different list types perform the same role, with a different
| output style.
Itemized and ordered lists have some of that flavor, but variable lists
(definition lists), segmented lists, and simple lists are different.
