I think this is the key issue: no other (or maybe some which I don't
know) major packages in Emacs attempt to bring together such disparate
functionalities.  It may be that this goes against some design
principles, most notably Unix with the basic idea of small tools which
connect via pipes, but it does mean that it is possible to manage a
significant project all within one file, or a collection files which are
bound quite seamlessly.

As a prose writing, programming and project management tool, it does
(for me) what other tools have been unable to do.  

I am not being defensive when I say that org has changed how I
work.  Whether this is due to its design or in spite of its design, I
cannot say, but having task management, babel, exporting and outlining
all in one place is fantastic and makes org indispensable to my work

I now just need gnus to be integrated within org and I will be set for
life! :-)
