It means the DSSSL Modular Stylesheets (or, more precisely, their l10n layer 
in dbl1fr.dsl) are buggy in that respect?

Any workaround? The DSSSL Modular Stylesheets do not seem to have any hook to 
change this.

Setting mark="dash" in every itemizedlist seems painful, and a violation of 
the "presentation vs. structure" principle.

I copied the definition of BULLTREAT in my custom driver and changed it, but 
it does not seem very clean and the dashes are wrong, very long and without 
space after them).
