With MkII it was possible to increase the itemlevel with the “levels” key but MkIV has a fixed depth which can’t be changed.

\maxitemdepth is a real counter and \setcounter won’t work here. The only thing you can do is to ask Hans to implement the “levels” key in MkIV. What you have to know is that this key is only used when you define a new list with \defineitemgroup, for a already existing group like “itemize” you can increase the depth.
