I've no clear cut opinion on this right now. Maybe yes, maybe not.

Though, there are differences between inline tasks and headlines:

- inline tasks are delimited with an ****** END marker (many asterisks)

- hence, they can contain a lot of things inside them:
  + paragraphs
  + lists
  + etc.

I am sure they could somehow be improved, but I already use them a lot for the
big advantage they offer: being tasks, and not breaking the document structure
(not adding levels in your document).

Your proposition would be (very) nice when we don't have to link a note to the
task. Does that mean it should be added?  Does that mean that, then, the notes
could or should be made available thru drawers?

All such questions certainly merit more attention.

Best regards,
