Wouldn't blocks that allowed org headings offer this. If I understand
this correctly, what you're really looking for is the ability to mark
certain bits of text as one blob, so that you can move them around
easily as you draft a paper, without worrying about pulling other bits
of the paper. So this would work:

* First level
blah blah

** Second level

some text

* Third level
because all headings within the block are treated as subheadings of
the containing level

** Fourth level
This is some rubbish that I'm not sure about


This is different rubbish that will stay here if I cut the block above me

Would something along those lines serve?
