Default word should allow bullets to be used as check boxes

When you create a list using bullet points (and perhaps even numbers) in
Word, each type of bullet symbol should have a pair symbol that the user
could toggle between with a single left-click. For example this would enable
the following:
With a list created using wingding's symbol 168 (an empty square) when the
user left-clicks on the symbol for a particular line, it would switch to
wingding's symbol 254 (a square box with a check mark in it).
Perhaps you could as many symbols as you like to rotate through. For
example a third click will then turn it into a wingding's symbol 253 (a
square with a cross in it).
For numbered lists a single-click might underline or place a circle around
the number or place a strike through it.
This would enable users to use this for preparing basic to-do lists.

similar to what you are asking for.
