Interesting all the points you comment, and this paragraph is important.
I'm thinking that without a clear and explicit environment (a begin/end
marks), any possible solution will always have its exceptions. However,
IMHO, I would not find desirable two explicit marks environment in the
style of LaTeX, since this would go against the virtue of legibility and
lightness in Org. I don't know if Markdown (on what it has in common
with Org as a lightweight markup language) also has similar problems in
lists formatting, since I hardly use Markdown and am not aware of its
many implementations...

I still think that highlighting the items would at least be a preventive
solution for Org.

Best regards,
