I've never felt the need: once I'm in a list, I use M-<RET> to add
another item, but I always start the list with a dash and a space, typed
explicitly: nothing to go wrong, nothing to remember. BTW, that last
point is getting more important as I get older...

[Aside: I find it more annoying to have to remember to type the
requisite number of RETs at the *end* of the list in order to allow
M-RET to create a headline afterwards: I invariably end up creating a
list item that I have to go back and delete.]

YMMV of course: I'm not saying you shouldn't have such a function.
But I often wonder *why* people would want such a thing (and more often
than I would like to acknowledge, people give good, cogent reasons why
they do, which indicates to me that I often lack imagination.)
