Is indentation more human?

I was creating a bulleted list in Word and using indentation to demarcate a sub-list, when a thought crossed my mind - what would it be like to use delimiter, instead of indentation?

  • Fruits {
  • Apple
  • Orange }
  • Veggies {
  • Spinach }

Eek! And yet, while writing programs, we work harder to appease the machine, than to help the human readers. Perhaps we have been working with machines so much, we have lost our ability to recognize human-friendliness?
