Can you describe that in more detail?

1)     orgtbl is nice as a minor mode. Why not go once step
       further and enable org as a minor mode; it would be nice
       to be able to create structured lists in email.

I don't know how this would be possible. The org-mode keymap would take over, no key from the current major mode would keep working. Orgtbl used a rather complicated trick to function in tables while leaving things to the major mode outside tables. I don't see how a similar trick could work for the whole file.

One could construct a restricted minor mode with some functionality - what stuff should be in there?

2)    At present, when you create a new list item, point
        sometimes appears
        to land at the beginning of the line, would be nice if
        you could just start typing after creating the new item.

Example, please?

3)      Would be nice to be able to start a list without having
        to create the first bullet by hand, but I dont have a
        good suggestion for how to go about achieving it

I guess typing "- " is faster than anything else you might be able to come up with.
