I could, and more or less have done it here:

the elisp link is a good idea, but I am looking into an idea for a
chemical markup language where you might have a $(molecule + data)$ and
reaction descriptions $(molecule -> new molecules)$ that become
machine-readable as well.

I want to explore a deeper integration of text and data, something like
RDFa but in s-expressions, and with export. That isn't critical, I can
always do pre-processing to transform them, but I think it would be nice
in the long run if it hooked into the org-machinery directly.
