Tricky problem, and I could see how this would be an issue. I guess I
always held to using unordered lists (- blah) for my lists vs. relying
on the nested headling functionality (** blah). I wonder if you could
tweak the beamer definition somehow to make a sort of "legacy beamer"
class for exporting these?

For example, I have the default template in my .emacs from the Beamer
setup instructions on Worg:

#+begin_src .emacs

'("beamer"
"\\documentclass$presentation$\{beamer\}"
("\\section\{%s\}" . "\\section*\{%s\}")
("\\subsection\{%s\}" . "\\subsection*\{%s\}")
("\\subsubsection\{%s\}" . "\\subsubsection*\{%s\}")))

#+end_src

Perhaps something there could be tweaked? I'm no lisp or org -> latex
mapping person, but perhaps others will have an idea of how you can
map something dynamically so that "One level below the H:number
setting gets converted to \itemize" (vs. the current conversion to
\begin{example} ?

Just a thought.

Sorry to not be more help to you!
