My motivation is to have an ability to create a virtual org file. My
workflow involves sharing bits and pieces of plain text with non-org
users and, right now, this means hacking and slashing org files to
remove org guff, putting org guff back in to edited plain text, or
trying to resolve diffs between org and non-org plain text files.

So a plain text file that has org-mode metadata rather than integrated
org guff has a lot of appeal.  I could send out the plain text, receive
edits and the metadata would preserve the org state.
