IMHO it has always been a _lightweight markup language_, used for
notes and TODO tasks, then soon enough for exporting too.

I got interested to Org back circa 2006 after I stopped working on a

BHL was a lightweight markup language targetting export only. Org was
vastly superior in all accounts, so I contributed to Org.
