I look forward to all the advances you have proposed... except for this one:

I'm concerned that it will make typing normal text more onerous.  Right
now, org is quite non-intrusive in most of my writing yet is quite rich
in what it can encode.  Having to backslash symbols that I use in text
quite often (especially square brackets) would be annoying.  Maybe I
misunderstood; if so, I apologise for the noise!

Regarding citations, I have not played with the -wip branch at
all.  Maybe I should.  It just wasn't clear where that branch had got to
and whether it was at a point worth trying.  Can you (or somebody else)
update us with a summary of what is possible?  I'm always in the process
of writing papers so I may be happy to be a guinea pig.
