Not yet, but outshine users know that they can use many of the same
speed commands on outshine headers like on org headers. I'll see if I
can upload something to youtube.

My motivation for an org-minor-mode came from situations where I wanted
some feature for outshine, like e.g. the :archive: tag (that keeps
subtrees permanently folded and would be very useful for hiding
commentary subtrees in programming mode files) or visibility cycling for
other elements than headlines, and I figured that it was all there in
Org-mode, but I would have to reimplement it on top of the outline.el

After this discussion it seems that reimplementing things is still the
better (and maybe the only viable) option. So lets close this thread,
and I focus on improving outshine/outorg so that they become (not by
name, but by functiionality) a kind of Org minor-mode.

Thanks for your time and input!
