Me too, but German context and only lowercase Greek letters. Uppercase is
probably too close to Latin script to be used among Latin lists.

Some of my professors use it quite commonly in second, third /or/ deeper
level, especially if the value of the parent list is not repeated, i.e. e.g.
"1.1.1.1 ...", but "I. ... 1. ... a) ... &alpha;) ...".
