I'd keep it an OL, then use JS to list-style-type: none them as well
as insert the spans with the new numbers. If the user doesn't have js,
they get dots but it still makes sense and you're not mucking with the
document source.

In contrast, a simple list item instead of a paragraph with a SPAN inside it means marginally higher text/markup ration which *could* marginally impact your SR placement, which *may* someday net you an extra visitor.
