Thank you for sharing!  I use the amazing "Hack" typeface [1].  Then, I
fail to understand how the font changes the fact that Org breaks "the
promise of plain text" in this regard.

For example, Org can hide its emphasis markers.  Later, one opens the
file in another editor and sees the truth.  The lines go over the fill
column, the tables have misaligned columns, and so on.
