dashes would be also ok, but I don't think rst would recognize them.
It does. But again, a definition list (using indentation) is also a list structure. It needs no markup besides the indentation.
My main problem with rst is that it doesn't allow hard line breaks, which forces some kind of markup to render lists.
Not true: you can use preformatted text if you want. But of course the result in not a list environment (e.g., in HTML or LatTeX output).
