Not impossible. There are some people on the schema group who'd like
to bring it back. But by no means a sure thing.

Yep. Or write your own code to validate the unordered-list elements;
since any nontrivial business application is going to need some extra
validation logic past what the DTD can do anyhow, this is probably
not too burdensome.
Another approach is to generate your documents in such a way that
you sort the unordered-list elements by any old criterion at all,
so that they become ordered-list elements; then use a simpler
content model. -Tim
