The text isn't that bad, but you are right.  Babel and exports is
perhaps underrepresented.  This one is slightly different, but perhaps
way to complicated.

"Orgmode is a Free/libre plain-text system for GNU Emacs for
organizing project, and maintaining TODO lists, keeping notes, doing
literate programming and exporting to many high quality formats."

Problems: many of the concepts are perhaps only intutive /after/ you
know Org-mode.

One remedy, to this, and a thing I think would be nice in any case,
would be if keywords in the presenting sentence would link to (worg?)
feature pages. 

For instance, export could link to a page briefly showing the many
exporters/features ¹ 

  - LaTeX
  - odt
  - plain text
  - html; blogs
  - beamer slides; html slides

For instance, such a page could show a simple org source file and the
exported version.


 ¹   The org exporter is very impressive by now thanks to Nicolas,
Jambunathan, Luis and the rest of the gang.  Thanks.

If you can mix business and politics wonderful things can happen!
