I think these specifications need to be refined. Should it only include
the headline and its section, or the whole tree starting at the headline?

You cannot do this with ox, as include keywords are expanded before the

I think `org-open-link-from-string' is what you want:

  (org-open-link-from-string "[[~/file.org::*foo]]")
