But, there is apparently one major drawback, as I said in a
previous post. If the line starts with a word followed by a dot or
a parenthesis, Org will see a bullet there. This is bad news
because the following line will be indented, or a M-RET will delete
the word, replacing it with a) or a.

Yes, this happens - it's not something that comes up during my
normal usage, so I didn't notice. Can you think of a way to
determine if this is the case vs. a list is actually wanted?

Unfortunately, I can't see anything clean. This is tricky because
lists are the closest construct to raw text.

My feeling is that we should not apply this patch. I see how it might be
nice to have such lists - but confusion is rather likely in
this case.

Or, alternatively, put it in with an option to turn it on (default off, I think). And maybe we should after all limit it to a single character to avoid confusion. Yes, I do realise that I asked for several characters - but I am learning...
