I went with that approach.

Ordered lists are transcoded to @itemize, while description lists are
transcoded to @table or some other table command.  So they cannot be
combined into one list-like thing in Texinfo.

The first two lists could be combined, but IMO it is better to only
require the :compact t once and avoid splitting the list and then
recombining the lists back into one.

Ps: Slightly sad about loosing the +.
    It looks very much like the x at the end of @itemx.
