This is a tough one.  Sometimes I want the behavior you describe.
Sometimes I want the behavior org-mode has.  For me it's not so must
the that I care about tab indenting right.  Org can't be a mind
reader.  It's that it may undo your indent if you if you do M-q and
org disagrees with you.  Maybe if there was a way to delimit the list

* this is the stuff
  It all happens here:
  - lock
  - stock
  - and barrel
  It's done now.

I choose the 5 -'s because it matches with the horizontal bar, just
indented.  (btw, could org-mode maybe take a line with 5 -'s and
extend it to the width of the window when displaying in the buffer?
Just an idea I'd use but don't really need.)  I don't know if it's the
right thing, and I'm guessing it may not be possible anyhow (with out
a lot of work).

Also I don't know what the correct behavior should be for:

* Slapstick
  - Stooges
    - Moe
    - Larry
    - Curly
    - Shemp
    - Joe

  - Marx
    - Groucho
    - Harpo
    - Chico
    - Gummo
    - Zeppo

I know what I'd like, but I don't know if it's practical.  Another
possibility is to do like rst and require a blank line when ending a
list entry.  Again, I'm not sure that is reasonably workable in
