But that is incompatible with the current convention to use ";;;+" where
the number of semi-colons indicates depth.  So it would require massive
rewrites of pretty much all files.
A non-starter.

Couldn't "Org-mode" be made to work with the current convention?
That would be a lot more useful since it would "just work" on all the
existing files.
