I often write journal entries after meetings describing what was
discussed. I often summarize using plain lists. Some of these are
ideas for future work, some are downright todos. Some paragraphs are
descriptions of ideas. Ideally for my case, I would want to be able to
tag a list item or even entire paragraphs as an 'idea' or turn a list
item into a todo-item without creating a new (sub)section:

text text text....
- *TODO* Sarah wants me to send her files A and B
- maybe we should try algorithm B on data set C   :idea:
text text text continuing the section...
