OK - that looks nice. Where can I read more about the @@...@@ syntax in
org? For conditional backend specific syntax I was only using

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+MACRO: clearpage (eval (if (org-export-derived-backend-p 
org-export-current-backend 'latex) "\\clearpage"        ""               ))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

but the @@...@@ looks clearer to me.

Hm. This sounds problematic, as I have to convert these to docx and send
them finally to the co-authors.

At the moment odt export just inserts "\color{red}" so I'll leave it
for this at the moment.
