Attached is a patch that adds a customization variable for setting which characters you can use as bullets in plain lists. Unicode has all kinds of pretty characters like or that would be good for bullets, why limit ourselves to just [-+*]? The variable's "set"

I guess. I spoke with someone on the IRC channel about this too, the basic idea being that the Org format should be stable, so the same file won't parse or behave differently on different installations. There's something to be said for that, but there are a fair number of customizable
