You're right. The only place I see the use of a list without the blank 
line is if you want a sublist within a list item without paragraphs, 
like this (strait from the Dingus example!):

     *   Abacus
         * ass
     *   Bastard
         1.  bitch
         2.  bupkis
             * BELITTLER
         3. burper
     *   Cunning

See: no blank line. But wait a minute... Where is the period? Or the 
colon? Oops, I guess my rule isn't so great after all. :-(
