Seems to me that the docs are pretty clear at least with respect to one
major reason to use the List property instead of InnerList:

The On* methods are invoked only on the instance returned
by the List property, but not on the instance returned by
the InnerList property.

In other words, if you want your own derived collection class to be able
to detect changes to the underlying list data structure, you need to use
the IList implementation retrieved from the List property, not the
ArrayList you get back from InnerList.
