I was thinking of files like etc/NEWS where having "a bit more than
outline-mode" would be welcome.

Why not?  If it can be prettified on the fly by font-lock?

Separating "viewing" from "editing" is un-Emacsish, because it puts
a barrier between the "consumers" and the "producers" whereas Emacs
likes to try and get end-users exposed to the source as mush as possible
so it takes little effort for them to change role.
