Very cool.  I think that this should work the same way:

1. line1
2. line2
     1. sub1
     2. sub2
3. line3

plus this css:
     ol li li { list-style-type: lower-alpha; }

should produce the same results as your example.  While using the 
markdown <ul> syntax is quicker to type, the resulting xhtml is less 
semantically accurate, since the goal is an ordered list.  This, of 
course, assume you care about sematic markup :-)   Me, I'm always up 
for some antics.
