Maybe it is better to simple ignore notes when exporting to other formats.

For me notes in beamer are useful only to give me an idea of what I intend to
talk about in the presentation and help me training for the presentation. They
are not really "part of the final exported document" and sometimes I put a lot
of information in them (possible in a different language from the
presentation).

Also, the contents in notes can be anything such as a table or a figure. This
obviously would result in an error if or if org tried to put them into a
footnote when exporting to other formats.

Therefore, the question is has anyone here any interest in notes when exporting
to other formats or do they only make sense when exporting to beamer?
