I'm not sure if it's a good idea to reset styles for only ul and ol elements that have a class. I'm guessing the rationale behind this decision was to remove default styling for elements that are semantically lists.

But consider the following case where the user is expecting default styling on a ul element, plus an added purple style for the text:

<ul class="text--purple">
  <li>Apple</li>
  <li>Orange</li>
  <li>Banana</li>
</ul>

In this case, the default margin and padding would be removed and AFAIK there isn't a way to restore the default UA styling.

Yeh that's valid, but I've found the styles as above more useful. It's probably better for you to create a fork in this instance.
