I think this is exactly what I want (with just a little moreprocessing).  Thank you so much for the idea! 

I'm having a little bit of trouble getting the same output as you though, and I'm wondering if there might be a setting that I need to change. 

Here is what I tried, and the result. Do you have an idea of what is going wrong here?

Thank you!

Maybe you could use builtin Babel
Hereafter you have a starting point
- Give a name to your input Org list
- Process it with Emacs-Lisp (or whatever language you are comfortable
with) to output it as a table

____ self contained Org Mode example _____

Example of a named list
- abc
  + 123
  + 456
- def
  + red
  + blue
- ghi
  + big
  + small

Example of converting the named list into a table with Emacs-Lisp
#+begin_src elisp :var bbb=BBB :results table

| abc | (unordered (123) (456))   |
| def | (unordered (red) (blue))  |
| ghi | (unordered (big) (small)) |
