I have composed and discarded three replies to this, and gave up.  Then
I read Dieter's phrase:

and it crystallized.

Richard, I summarize your desire as "Org should be implemented so that
its features can be composed."   I reply:  "Org is an attempt to
-perform- just that composition."  I can use more of the various
packages in Emacs, simultaneously, in org-mode, than in any other
environment I've used.

So when you talk about wanting to use "org-mode features" somewhere
else, it registers on my brain like a category error.   "Can't you
please make the intersection where all roads meet, be over here where
there's just one road? " ....

I know the description of org-mode as purely alloy of other things is
incorrect: nothing's pure.

But maybe this will help the conversation.
