Give what a shot, exactly?  I already put such text in the buffer,
when such text is what I want.  So I think I've already "given that a shot".
Or do you mean something else?  Like, editing it in Org mode?

How would that be different from editing it in Fundamental mode?
What benefit would it give me?

It might be useful if I used gnuplot.  But I have never used it.

I am sure Org mode is useful for the people who use it.
I'm not disputing that.
