Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your long answer and the many references, I guess my main point
was a bit nit-picking in the sense that Semantically/Linguistically it does
not seem to make sense to me to use a ListItem (yes it works, but if you
were to tell anyone that is what you need to use I think they would also
say "huh?")

Container and Item and are not documented here:
To me using Item or Container for this would make most sense actually.

Thanks again for your time,
