Because using a list on this page would be, in my opinion, wrong.  The DIVs
are in fact small containers that themselves hold other content, which can
be all kinds of things, including flash objects, lists or entire stories
wrapped in <P>s.

The Drag & Drop is for the admin part of the application, so the order in
which the DIVs are displayed can be easily adjusted.  I can put four arrows
in there or something and have the admin move them about like that, but a
Drag & Drop solution, if implemented properly, can save a lot of time if
there are a lot of content DIVs and something has to be moved a long way.
