I'm trying to get my head around what a 'readable exchange format' is.

org-export.el already exports as an elisp list:

M-: (setq my-org-buffer-as-elisp (org-element-parse-buffer)) RTE

... and it's pretty readable :-)

So the basic idea is that you would export from an org file to an org file but 
one with
a /different/ and maybe standardized format (highly standardized is the
oref gist?).  

For example, anything that
is content passes through as text and everything else (org guff) is put
into a :PROPERTIES: :END: wrapper?

A mission truly beyond my abilities, but how could I say no to such a
meta org-mode process :-)

Is the right place to start basically turning (org-element-parse-buffer)
output back into an org buffer?  Is this best thought of as another backend? I
can't quite see why org-e-oref.el and not just org-e-org.el?
