I'm not afraid of coding, I'll just have to pick up lisp. ;]

The idea of the key/value pairs simply means that custom features can
be implemented at any time without changing the core org-mode.

I do like the idea of doing simple searches on the key/value pairs, I
also like the thought of another level of folding. If you have 5
extra lines of k/v pairs under a heading, maybe you don't want to see
them all unless you ask.

The original submitter had the right idea, this allows alot of
expansion and customization with minimal overhead.
