I was just thinking that list is simpler and shorter, we need not prefix
everything in the Org domain with the prefix org.  Is there a regular
list that you are concerned this name will conflate with.

I haven't thought of how these `meta' or `style' properties of lists
should be represented, I am hoping that some good ideas for this will
come from the list (the mailing list).

The most obvious solution seems to be a new header argument
":list-style" or somesuch, which could take options for all org-mode
list style types.  The backend uses the `org-list-to-generic' function
which already exists inside of Org-mode and has a great deal of options
so ideally any solution will serve as a thin layer to pass options
directly from the user through to this function.  The main question is
"what's the best syntax".

Thanks -- Eric
