Oh well, I suppose these types of issues will probably be rendered moot on moving to EPUB3 and the nav document.
I've figured out the solution. For the entry that you want as a header for the top level, put in the same file to go to as the first entry in the next level. That way if anyone does use it to go to a ToC entry, it will go to the first one in level 2. So using your example...
List Title [links to same page as item 1]
List Item 1 [links to page]
List Item 2 [links to page]
List Item 3 [links to page]
