Org mode is built around '.org' files (and a 'philosophy'). 
Albeit they are text files, they have some syntax and semantics
provided by the associated mode. Not everyone will adhere to that.

Somehow, you could say the same from the VI emulation modes under Emacs.
There is a whole universe around Evil under Emacs : 52 packages on MELPA.

This is the problem with a programmable editor: 
people start to program it and they use it 
because they can program it :-)
