Hi Samuel, Agree, I have started using variable pitch in org-mode and it has made it much more enjoyable.
I recently documented my configuration here: http://zzamboni.org/post/beautifying-org-mode-in-emacs/ <http://zzamboni.org/post/beautifying-org-mode-in-emacs/> About your point (1.3), I have source blocks set to fixed-pitch by configuring the “org-block” face, works well.
