I only skimmed over your proposal, as I don't have much time. I'm sorry
if you answered this already, but I don't understand how what you
suggest would differ from regular keywords.

As a reminder:
- you can create, and support, as many keywords as you want;
- keywords all operate at the "document-level";
- keywords can be located anywhere in the document.

I think Org keywords already provide everything you need. If they don't,
I would suggest to improve them instead of creating something else.
