My wording!
You seem to have found a comrade.
I would further suggest getting in touch (apart from the mailing list and exchanging ideas and current setup).

Wow, didn't think this observation would generate so much buzz :) Great to know other org-mode users feel the need for it too.

Another aspect is that when you archive and item (when it's DONE) it's nice to know it's context. If you have a NEXT ACTION that belongs to a project and this specific NA is already DONE, if you archive it you'll loose context. (you might want to data mine the archive file later, never knows :)).

Anyway, as you could note, these additions are GTD-specific, since I'm a GTD-proponent. And org-mode was so far the best system to implement GTD after plain paper.

Maybe we could create a GTD extension to org-mode? I'd love to help in the development, but I have no idea on how the code is structured and or how easy is to add / modify current features (coupling, plugin model, etc). Is there any document that explains it?

the idea might just be nonsense from an implementation perspective.
Nonsense or not.... I like the idea a lot!

It would be of great help to me.

personally I would only need one parent (the inner most) headline.
In your example that would the following:

Make a plan TODO Print a trillion dollars

[Take over the world/Make a plan] TODO Print a trillion dollars
is even better if the level can be customized and the order reversed.

The agenda has a prefix by default... maybe that could be/get used.
