I agree it would be confusing since the user would have to learn how to use
outline-mode, which is not as straight-forward as one might like.
OTOH if you also turn on reveal-mode, then it's at least easier for the user
to read the rest of the text, although she still has to come up with the
idea of trying to move into those "..." to see whether they actually stand
for something or not.
