I guess I should try it out before I say it! What I said above doesn't work.
To use sectioning commands you'd have to redefine the \subsection command so
that it would be a run-in heading (the afterskip is negative) as well as
change \thesubsection to only give the sub-section number in arabic.

However, the use of sectioning and enumerated lists does work.

Good Luck,
