I do not understand this.  How could I use "standard Emacs features" in
order to use (Org-specific) headline properties in (Org-specific)
spreadsheet???  I don't see how I could use text properties for that -
AFAIK, they are something completely different.

Yes, I use quite a bunch of Org features, for instance clocking,
exporting, custom TODO keywords, agenda, links, capturing...  I've also
written some Elisp to interact with Org and enhance it for my use-cases.
And still there are a lot of features of Org I know next to nothing
about, both from the user's and from the programmer's POV.
