I don't think that preserving the id attribute here is necessary and not even correct.

All transformations remove the id attribute, because in fact that attribute was pointing to an element that is not any more available, being it replaced by a different one. This means that transferring the id would be semantically wrong.

Note that step "4" is not undoing the list creation (step "3"), but is instead transforming the list in paragraph.

Thanks for the initial assessment fredck. The problem I'm running into is that the conversion from the p tag to the li tag preserves the id attribute, whereas the conversion from the li tag to the p tag does not. This seems a little inconsistent to me as I need to know what expectation to set for our users.

Put in that way, there is in fact little to discuss about it. We must be consistent and I believe that keeping id on p->li was intentional.

The id attribute was stripped also in 3.0, so I'm setting the version number that isn't suggesting a recent regression.
