You did not attach a file and you probably want to make it as s new
message without the ref to the previous thread.

In any case, I don't like the spirit of the exercise:

This is intended as a semi-official, semi-curated repository for
helpful pieces of org export hooks and customizations.

If it's helpful (enough) it should be ox.el, I guess, or
ox-ENGINGE.el. . .  Parallel, semi-official extension to ox itself
doesn't sound nice.

But with high probability I'm just lacking the right insights!
