I see your point, but you can't blame Org for it.  For all those
powerful features to work - under plain text - the Org people had to
invent some sort of "markup" language.  I guess they were just the first
to succeed with this "organiser" idea, utilising disparate Emacs modules
(folding, Calc, calendar, BBDB, GNUS, Elisp, dired, ...) from *one*
major mode.  It is this unifying approach which is most important, I
want my document for capturing, organising and storing information, I
need to calculate and visualise information and also that the very same
sources can be published as well.

And I don't have a problem with its formatting (just an unavoidable
thing in general) because I experience Org as an enabler of Emacs'
functionality triggered from *one* document.  So for me Org is as much
Emacs and more as, for example, dired is!
