Ditto. There is consistency and there is what pulls the
eye away from the item and to the numbering and bullet.
Thus, losing the real message to the reader.

IMHO the 1 number would look quite odd.

Is there a compromise here? Another way to make
the direction/statement? Without either?

Depending on the reviewer's sway you may have to go for
the consistency... reality does intrude <voice trailing>
