I am reluctant to fake data presented to transcoders. I am even more
reluctant when some information is lost in the process. A back-end might
need to tell the difference between an headline that should be treated
as a list and a regular list. For example some back-end with weak list
concept (limited in the types of objects lists can contain) would rather
not turn headlines into items.

Currently, the exporter API is more oriented towards showing full info,
and giving clues on how to handle it.

This is a back-end specific limitation. I guess it is unavoidable.

Though, if you think about a generic tool that could reduce the amount
of work required, I will include it in org-export.el.
