It seems that your approach would do a good job of helping you catch
cases that you don't want to be treated as lists.  I'm not aware of any
related functionality in Org, so I don't think you're missing something

Once you know that there is a particular spot that you want to prevent
from being interpreted as a list, you could add a zero-width space in
front of it:

    (info "(org)Escape Character")

I'm not sure if that's the sort of solution you're asking for, though.
