M-<enter> does this. You do not want <enter> to do that because 
you when you want to finish the list <enter> finishes it.

I am not sure that I understand this but I assume that you would 
obtain the same with <tab>. It goes back and forth between levels 
of list so if you have
- one
- two
  + a

and you hit <tab> then it changes to 

- one
- two
  + a

and then two times <tab> (or S-<tab> from the beginning) changes 
it to

- one
- two
  + a

I guess you could remap <backspace> to a function that checks if 
you are at the beginning of the list and when that is true it does 
what you want, otherwise it just calls `delete-backward-char'. But 
generally I would do C-a C-k <backspace>, just two more

M-S-<enter> inserts a check box.
