Yep, I know the differences.

I'm talking about the way they _look_.  So many asterisks looks
cumbersome to mee, and I'd favor a non-intrusive syntax like the 
one proposed above.

My question was: what is the rationale behind using so many asterisks?

I can think of three things:

1. people want inline tasks with possibly no TODO keyword
2. people prefer to detect them *very easily*
3. changing the syntax of inline tasks from changing todos
   (like !TODO) is too complicated code-wise

My proposal is this:

- enforce the use of TODO keywords in inline tasks (wrt 1)
- make a special face for inline tasks (wrt 2)

My change would affect the content you can add to inline tasks and 
the way they are treated by exporters.

Sure -- thanks for your input!
