I may be barking up the wrong tree, but to me the problem seems to be
not so much what org does, but what latex does. If that is so, then
perhaps what is needed is a latex style file that formats prose
"correctly for the literary world". That may be a non-trivial
undertaking (but maybe not: typographical demands for a novel are
trivial compared to say mathematics). Integrating such a hypothetical
style file into org would be pretty easy.

But perhaps the OP can clarify: what does "incorrectly formatted for
the literary world" mean?
