My guess would be that most notes are short.  For such notes, but not
necessarily for longer notes, [@:NOTE] would be more convenient.  Though I
don't know what the "@" signifies.  I think whatever is the value of
#+TODO makes more sense as prefixes.

I don't think it would be easy to convince coauthors of documents, who are
not using Emacs, that this is something "easy" to use.  I guess not many
people do XML in Nano or Notepad, since keeping track of opening and
closing tags is a pain.

Formatting tags, e.g. *, are somehow natural and shorter.  Blocks are
"easy" to see.

E.g. "Sentence about BAR [TODO: add reference to FOO and check BAZ]".  I
don't need that in my agenda.

But this is a change to the *format*, not its principal editor.
