I did bounce this off of a Russian office mate who confirmed that
they did use cyrillic for lists.  He emailed home to double check
his memory, a family member there confirmed and pointed out that
with the cyrillic typewriter there was no choice but to use
cyrillic in lists, so they seem to have an established tradition
for it.

He mentioned that they also use roman numerals for lists in russian
literature  -not sure how that mapped onto the cyrillic typewriter ;-)

Anyway, it seems a lower-cyrillic and upper-cyrillic should be
considered for inclusion.
