Org mode seems to lack data extraction/insertion. There's agenda view, but that's just one method. Obviously, you could use things like grep or other command-line Unix utilities, but being able to organize and extract based on your stuff being stored graph-aware would be nice, IMHO. Being able to traverse a graph data structure and do an add or read or whatever would be great, IHMO. You'd have the benefits of a database with all the good stuff about org mode retained.

Sure: you could superimpose a graph structure using headline
properties.  You could define CHILDREN, PARENT, NODES, NEXT, PREVIOUS,
... types of properties entries and write emacs lisp code to process
these.  Not sure what you want to do accomplish in the end, mind you...
