Why are you using TEI for this purpose?
In any event, it sounds as though your list needs labels. From
<!ELEMENT %n.list; - - ((%n.head)?, ( ((%n.item)+) |
(%n.label;, %n.item;)+))) >
Though I don't use TEI very much, I'd think that your enumerators
go in labels as content, which you can mark up. This would be like
a DL in HTML, or a Variablelist in Docbook.
