Perhaps my suggestion is not clear.  I would like this:

  * {.high} Item 1
  * {.low} Item 2

to become this:

  <ul class="tasks">
    <li class="high">Item 1</li>
    <li class="low">Item 2</li>

The list item is itself a block-level element, and I'm requesting that  * {attribute} and 1. {attribute}  become the syntax for applying attributes to list item elements themselves (not some other block element inside).
