[whatwg] [HTML5] Named start values for lists?

HTML5 brings back the |start| attribute on ordered lists. This allows a
list to semantically start with a number other than one. It seems like
the major use case for this is to split lists up, so that a single list
is marked by multiple <ol>s.
Would it therefore make sense to allow named start values, so that the
author doesn't have to go through and re-number everything when a new
item is added at the top? And if so, should they be considered
semantically one list? And if so, would it make sense for it to also
apply to unordered lists, so that they can be split up, too?
Or would all that be an abuse, and something that's one list should use
only one <?l> ?
