Doubt about standard syntax

I have a doubt about the standard syntax (actually, it's the only test
that maruku doesn't pass yet).

Lists MUST be preceded by an empty line?

So the following are only 4 paragraphs, without list items, right?

Paragraph and no space:
* ciao

Paragraph and 1 space:
* ciao

Paragraph and 3 spaces:
* ciao

Paragraph and 4 spaces:
* ciao

In other words, a paragraph, once started, eats everything until a blank line?
