Dear Martin,
This is for your kind information that we don't use vowel list for Bulleting
in Bengali, Oriya and Assamese etc.
Normally, to my best knowledge,  we use either Numeric bulleting (starting
from 1-one ) or Consonant bulleting only. Vowels are not used for buletting.
This might be true for other Indian Languages also (e.g. Gujrati, Malayalam
and Hindi etc.)

Thanks and Regards,
Goutam Kumar Saha
