True, in the discussion about stars I believe the suggestion was to use
a regex for the headline marker in outline-mode. But the majority
opinion was it would be too fragile. Your argument that org owns this
better is probably correct, but I am no expert. Nicolas is the list
expert, he will be able to say how easy/feasible/difficult it would be
to make this customisable.

Ah! Lets wait for the experts to comment.
