Well that explains a lot to those of us unfamiliar with the history.  Maybe the
popularity is based on two things: 1. they provided a welcoming community
that allowed for many people to contribute; 2. they provided the only significant
solution in these areas to people who wanted to do them within Emacs.

Now that all the useful work has been done, and experiences gained, it could
be a good time to sift out some of the best of its functionality into separate

Or produce a coherent set of requirements and have an Emacs-familiar architect
and programmer (or team) work to produce new implementations with clean
data abstractions, improved visual formats and even higher usability.  Task
tracking, agendas, outlining and literate programming are important daily work
areas for  many technical people, so Emacs should have excellent tools in these
areas.  Has anyone examined the org-mode code to see whether it is well
written or not?
