But that would mean that org would have to disallow multiple
paragraphs in one list item, which is currently allowed.

I think the only way to get what you want is to have distinct markers
for starting and ending the lists. Something like

**** Proposal for a more explicit list syntax
     An attempt to provide more robust indentation for lists with
     follow-on text.
     - Here is a list item
     - Here is another item.

       This item has multiple paras.
     - And a third item
       + With an embedded sub-list
       + Second sub-item
       Final part of third item
     And here the lists have ended, so indentation returns to

One thing I'm not too happy about with this proposal is that the - in
the start list marker (/-) does not line up with the other -'s. An
alternative could be something like

- one
- two

or (if unicode is allowed) even

- one
- two

What do people think? The interaction with org-outdent-item would be tricky.
