Yes it is :)
If it is producing list-item-labels without content --at least an  
empty block would suffice-- then the stylesheet should be altered. It  
is resulting in FO that does not adhere to the rules in the XSL-FO  
Rec, so it would be more reasonable to change the stylesheet.

Either it should create an 'empty' list-item, with both label and  
body at least containing an empty block, or it should not create a  
list-item at all.

Hmm... We already allow table-bodies without child-nodes if strict  
validation is turned off, so might as well add this. Not too much  
harm, I guess.

But again, strictly speaking, it's the stylesheet that is in error  
here and should be fixed.
