This is very limited: you cannot write two paragraphs in your note.

You turn every annotation into a task. Again, this is very restrictive.

My sole focus is Emacs users, tho.

Since you're talking about "TODO functionality", what features would
this share with regular tasks, defined with headlines or inlinetasks?

Do you think tables are particularly nice to write if you work outside
of Org mode? There is no clause about being easy to edit from Nano in

Anyway, we're speaking of two different things, e.g., I think it's
important to be able to mark exactly which part of the document you're
annotating. [TODO: ...] cannot do that.
