Thanks for that. Did you work on the demote/promote problem, too?

No, nothing related to lists actually. But I added a way to configure
export of inline tasks.

As pointed out above in my special case inline tasks would be a
great thing to have in lists. But I understand your reservation.

It would be desirable to hear the opinions of others here.

1. My feeling is that it would be nice to allow drawers inside a list.
2. I don't think it is important to allow lists inside drawers inside
   lists - you can just say in the docs that this is not supported
   and let users deal with this limitation.
3. What should be allowed is to have lists inside a drawer that is not
   itself in a list.  We need that for logbook entries and the like.
4. I also think that inline tasks inside a list are overkill and would
   overly complicate things.

With a drawer, you mean something like the following?

| - Item 1
|   - Item 1a
|     :COMMENT:
|     This is a comment.
|     :END:
|   - Item 1b
| - Item 2
| - Item 3


In HTML export it would then be important to be able to format the
comment with CSS. Right now my inline tasks get a nice border and a
colored background so that the comments can be recognized withhin
the lists. Would this be possible for drawers, too?

Sure, drawers export is configurable. You can have a look at
