I suppose that it will start working on some version of IE. If I remember correctly, these templates (and I would guess the styles) only worked with lists as defined with UL or OL and not just breaks between lines.
Templates work sort of as Regular Expression parsers. Most of the list processing I have seen works with line breaks, and are not specifically written for OL or UL lists.
I think reflist builds lists, but it just throws the UL tag at the top (or OL with a starting number) and then adds * or # to the items in the list to get the <LI> tag. I think reflist handles OL / UL, but is not specific for it.
As for implementing the list stuff that only Firefox users can see, I don't really have an opinion. The templates on Wikipedia seem to fail gracefully for IE, so they really don't cause problems. It is a bit of extra complexity that is not needed by most, so it might make sense to spend time elsewhere, rather than pretty multi-col lists that only a few people will ever see.
